Integrating Social Welfare Policy and Social Work Practice - 94 edition

Integrating Social Welfare Policy and Social Work Practice (ISBN10: 0534174302; ISBN13: 9780534174309)
ISBN13: 978-0534174309
ISBN10: 0534174302

Summary: Using interesting case studies and avoiding cumbersome policy "lingo," Kathleen McInnis-Dittrich presents a truly different policy book: one that looks at social welfare policy through the eyes of the social work practitioner. By integrating policy and practice, the author shows how policy is an important part of social work practice.
  • A hypothetical mental health center illustrates the internal
    and external environments of the social service agency, revealing the difficulty of establishing organizational goals, the uncertain nature of social work technology, and the constant scramble for resources.
  • Three primary means by which policy is developed are examined: the legislative process, the media, and the court system, and an in-depth example of a community's struggle to develop a policy to address teenage parenthood is presented using the problem-solving model, enabling direct services students to utilize a familiar tool.
  • Chapter six introduces the ANALYSIS model, a framework for assessing programs and policies. By the use of the word ANALYSIS as a mnemonic device, students are given an easy to remember and practical tool for engaging in program evaluation.
  • Each chapter contains examples, a list of important words or concepts, discussion questions and suggested projects, all geared to help the reader apply new ideas to current experiences in either volunteer work or field placements.
