Examines how social workers can influence policy through practice.


Engaging Social Welfare: An Introduction to Policy Analysis explains the clash between political and economic forces that shape social welfare policy and how social workers can influence policy through their practice. Students will learn how social workers can impact policy in ways that may not feel like policymaking, such as reducing the impact of law on their clients, or figuring out a more efficient and effective way to delivery a service. This titleprovides readers with the knowledge and set of competencies needed to translate the phrase policy practice into meaningful action and the understanding that every social worker is a policymaker.


Connecting Core Competencies Series - This title is part of the Connecting Core Competencies Series, designed to guide students in becoming skilled at the Council on Social Work's core competencies. Each chapter reflects and integrates the latest CSWE competency standards (EPAS). End-of-chapter assessment reinforces this integration.
