Social workers at all practice levels must understand the nature of social problems and the influences that are crucial in establishing social welfare policies. This book provides specific tactics for policy practice and how to apply them at different levels of organization and policy. Useful for both social work students and practitioners, this book lays down the essentials for making social policy changes on all levels of the government.
"Rocha's book…makes an important contribution to the literature and knowledge base. [It] is ideal for students and undergraduate- and graduate-level policy practice classes, faculty, nonprofit professionals, and social work practitioners." (Journal of Community Practice, 2009)
Cynthia J. Rocha, PhD, is an Associate Professor in the College of Social Work at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. She has taught social work policy courses for more than a decade, and has also written several journal articles and book chapters on policy and policy practice.
A very good basic text on how to advocate for policy changes. Clearly written and practical. Would be excellent for undergraduate students or a practitioner new to policy. Not in-depth as to actual policy development, writing, or implementation. Therefore, if used by an advanced level practitioner or graduate student, this should be a supplemental text.
