Free Chapter | Social Policy for Effective Practice: A Strengths Approach

By Rosemary Kennedy Chapin, Melinda Kay Lewis

The fifth edition of Social Policy for Effective Practice offers a rich variety of resources and knowledge foundations to help social work students understand and contend with the continually evolving social policy landscape that surrounds them. The authors have continued their values-based approach and kept the focus on clients’ strengths to help students position themselves for effective engagement on new fronts where policy threats and outcomes affect clients’ lives in myriad ways.

The new edition comprehensively covers the process of defining need, analyzing social policy, and developing policy, and each chapter builds on the practical knowledge and skills forged from previous ones.
