Summary

Social justice is one of the six core values of the social work profession set out in the NASW Code of Ethics. Professor Hoefer argues that advocacy is a key tool in achieving social justice, and this text offers a concise plan to help social workers integrate advocating into a generalist practice.

Advocacy Practice for Social Justice argues that social workers have an obligation not only to participate in advocacy, but also to empower others to do so. Throughout the text, anecdotes and case studies act as examples of the ethical imperatives for advocacy and advocating in social work. These motivations, combined with Professor Hoefer's structured approach to advocacy, will lead to more successful advocating and, in turn, increased social justice.

Professor Hoefer shows that the process of advocating is composed of the same basic steps familiar to social workers in generalist practice. In both cases, these steps form a process that begins with establishing a relationship with the client, continues with the creation and implementation of a plan of action, and ends with short and long-term evaluation. The author's clear step-by-step design acts as a blueprint for advocacy capacity building.
