Social Policy for Effective Practice: A Strengths Approach is the fourth of five innovative texts in a new series by McGraw-Hill: NEW DIRECTIONS IN SOCIAL WORK: A McGraw-Hill Series. This book examines the process of defining need, analyzing social policy, and developing new policy. A clear philosophical base and a common theoretical framework underlie the discussion of each component of the policy process. Four themes are interwoven throughout the book: the importance of thinking critically about social policy, the benefits of using the strengths perspective in policy analysis and development, the critical role social policy plays in all areas of practice, and the absolute responsibility of every social worker to engage in policy practice.
