Advocacy Practice for Social Justice, Third Edition
By

Rating
Current economic and social forces are creating a society with less equality, justice and opportunity for all but the privileged few. Social workers are called upon by their code of ethics to counteract these trends and actively work to achieve social justice. Hoefer's empirically-based, step-by-step approach demonstrates how to integrate advocacy for social justice into everyday social work practice. The book shows through anecdotes, case studies, examples, and the author's own personal experiences, exactly how advocacy can be conducted with successful outcomes. Each chapter builds upon the previous to provide a concise yet detailed blueprint for conducting successful advocacy. The previous two editions of this book have been used and admired by professors and students alike. Students value its clarity and praise the book for opening their eyes to what they often believed was "the scary and bad" world of politics and policy. After reading the book, they are motivated to become advocates for social justice because they understand how to do so. If you want to empower your students to effect changes in laws, regulations, and other types of policy at all levels, you will find this text the perfect resource to do so.

Reviews

[The book] creatively and thoughtfully communicates the nature of advocacy practice, and the ways that advocacy practice aligns with and diverges from traditional direct practice. For those who have not yet realized that advocacy practice is indeed social work practice, this is the beginning of a journey toward the inevitable." -Heather Kanenberg, Journal of Baccalaureate Social Work, Vol. 17 (2012)
