Connects social policy and the everyday practice of social work.

 

The sixth edition of The Policy-Based Profession provides students with a process for analyzing policies that will help them with a career in social work. It offers a detailed foundation for policy analysis, including chapters on historical policy analysis, social/economic analysis, and political analysis. This title brings students up to date on the latest developments in social work practice. Areas covered include: welfare reform, mental health managed care, the campaign to restructure Social Security, reactions to current immigration issues, current threats to workers’ pensions, program and policy responses to the problems of substance abuse, and the use of family preservation as an approach to child protection. A new chapter  on health care reform discusses the economic impact of the Affordable Care Act.

 

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.
