Actor-Centered Social Work: Re-visioning "Person-in-Environment" through a Critical Theory Lens.
Kondrat, Mary Ellen
Social Work, v47 n4 p435-48 Oct 2002
This article revisions the relationship between person and social environment through the lens of critical theory. Emphasizing distinctively human characteristics, arguments define human actors as coconstructors of their social environments. Although human behavior is shaped by society and its structures, those very structures are recursively constructed, maintained, and reproduced by the social actions of human agents over time.
