9781285751603: Brooks/Cole Empowerment Series: Foundations of Social Policy (Book Only): Social Justice in Human Perspective

Reflecting the idea that social justice is a primary mission of the social work profession, this text provides a thorough grounding in policy analysis-with extensive coverage of policy practice and a unique emphasis on the broad issues and human dilemmas inherent in the pursuit of social justice. The book introduces several philosophical perspectives on what constitutes social justice, and identifies values and assumptions reflected in contemporary policy debates. FOUNDATIONS OF SOCIAL POLICY, Fifth Edition, part of the BROOKS/COLE EMPOWERMENT SERIES, integrates the core competencies and practice behaviors outlined in the 2008 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). Numerous updates, on topics ranging from women in combat and elder abuse to the DOMA decision and movements against public employee unions, showcase the profound impact of current events on policy issues and social justice in the United States and internationally.

About the Author:

A self-proclaimed news junkie/policy wonk, Amanda Barusch is fascinated (and sometimes horrified) by U.S politics and policies. For two decades, updating this book has enabled her to monitor the intricate shifts and major sea changes in America's pursuit of social justice. A native of California, Dr. Barusch completed her B.A. at Reed College, her M.S.W. and Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley, and her M.F.A. in creative writing at the University of Utah. Her primary research and teaching interests are in the fields of social policy and aging. She has investigated topics ranging from interpersonal relations to international policy comparisons. She has published articles in leading North American journals, seven books, and numerous poems and short stories. Dr. Barusch joined the faculty at the University of Utah College of Social Work in 1985, where she has served as Associate Dean. She was Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Gerontological Social Work for six years, and is on the editorial board of several international journals. She is a fellow in the Gerontological Society of America. She also holds a Professorial appointment at the University of Otago in New Zealand, where she can be found when winter reaches the northern hemisphere.
