Overview

Advocacy in the Human Services / Edition 1


Advocacy is needed now more than ever. Opportunities to engage in advocacy have increased due to changes at the federal level which are relegating more and more human service funding and decision-making to the state and local level. The purpose of this text is to educate students and professionals so that they have a deeper understanding of advocacy practice in order to fully serve clients.
