What is included with this book?


Help students connect social policy to the everyday practice of social work
The Policy-Based Profession
provides students with a process for analyzing policies that will help them with their careers in social work. It offers a detailed foundation for policy analysis, including chapters on historical, economic, and social policy analysis. Students then learn to apply the analysis framework to representative policies and issues in the fields of public welfare, aging, mental health, substance abuse, health, child welfare, and immigration.

Correlated with the most recent Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) Competencies, the 7th Edition includes the most recent research, theories, and political developments impacting the field. An entirely new chapter on immigration policy highlights this critical social justice issue, the health chapter delves into recent happenings in health care reform, and the mental health chapter includes material on the opioid epidemic and returning veterans.
