Product Overview

This book is designed to promote advocacy into social work curricula in response to the new NASW Code of Ethics and its emphasis on advocacy, as well as the Curriculum Policy Statement of CSWE that promotes social and economic justice. In an effort to clarify what advocacy actually is and does, the authors created a new practice framework so that social workers can approach advocacy in a systematic way. Along with a practice framework, this book gives an overview of the history of advocacy and hands-on skill building to enhance the reader's effectiveness as an advocate.
-- Addresses the advocacy spectrum by discussing four different advocacy settings: client, cause, legislative, and administrative.
-- Quotes from readers and practitioners who have experience as advocates are featured in the Advocates in Action sections, providing the readers with inside perspectives.
-- Case examples are included showing readers examples of real-life situations.
