Black Single Mothers and the Child Welfare System examines the pressures, hardships, and oppression women of color face
in the child welfare system, and how this affects social workers who investigate childhood abuse and neglect. Author
Brandynicole Brooks addresses intersectionality and ideological, institutional, interpersonal, and internalized
oppression and how it affects the safety, permanence, and well-being of children. Through research and real-life
examples, the reader will be immersed in a historical perspective of oppression faced by black single mothers involved
with social service systems, understand the definition of oppression and its four interrelated facets, examine ways
oppression plays out in child welfare supports and services, and discover new integrated methods of addressing
oppression. The last chapter discusses theory, generalist social work practice, and transformational leadership styles,
which can be used by social workers to advocate on behalf of their clients and inspire self-advocacy, thus transforming
child welfare.
