Details please answer this question-I have attached a file and would like the essay simmilar to that one but obviously not plagarised.
According to Jones and May (1992:5) a?social and welfare work as practised in Australia is an organisational as well as a professional activitya?. They argue that organisations are central in determining and influencing almost every aspect of professional practice.
With specific reference to the first two chapters of Jones and May (1992), your task is to compare and contrast two of the ten theoretical perspectives described by Jones and May p33 (feminist perspectives & the theory of bureaucracy) regarding organisational analysis and explore this statement with reference to social work practice. Include a few organisational examples to show deeper understanding. While Jones and Mayas chapters are central to this paper, you are required to demonstrate broader reading on this topic.
