Updated to reflect the changes in social welfare policy and the advances in technology, this revision continues to provide new ideas and strategies to help students become better advocates for their future clients. Focusing on advocacy as the central mission of social work practice, Affecting Change, Fourth Edition is a practical, step-by-step guide to developing political action skills and integrating them with traditional social work skills. The text stresses the growing need for social workers to affect social policy through political action. Praised for its conversational style and its ability to translate complex political terms into accessible language, this book does not intimidate students with the political process. Instead, lively and pithy vignettes from practicing professionals enhance the practicality and currency of this book, and provide students with a snapshot of what they might expect in the real world.
