9780205052769: Social Policy and Social Programs: A Method for the Practical Public Policy Analyst (6th Edition) (Connecting Core Competencies)

Explores the basics of social policy and program analysis, such as designing new programs or evaluating and improving existing ones.

 

Social Policy and Social Programs is distinctive in providing specific criteria for judging the effectiveness of social policies and programs. These criteria can be applied to the analysis of widely different social services such as counseling and therapeutic services, supportive assistance, and “hard” benefits like food stamps, cash, and housing vouchers.

 

By focusing especially on social problems, policies, and programs in major practice areas like child welfare, health, poverty, and mental illness, the author provides students with the tools they need to understand and evaluate the programs in which they are doing their field placements.

 

Upon completing this book readers will be able to:

  • Analyze the effectiveness of current social programs
  • Create new programs based on the criteria provided
  • Apply what they have learned to evaluate their field placement programs

He did research at the British Library in London, England, on policy topics, primarily the British Workman's Compensation system and the British tradition of social policy. In various years he was the recipient of Fulbright Research awards for the study of adoption law and administration in Central American countries. He is the author of a book on Evaluation Research as well as on a method for the analysis of Social Policy and Programs. Over the years he published in leading policy journals in both England and the United States.
