Updated to reflect advances in a changing political arena of Obama’s administration, this revision shows students how to develop political action skills and to take advantage of the opportunity of change. This practical, step-by-step guide focuses on advocacy as the central mission of social work practice. New material and 17 new personal scenarios involving social workers who have made a difference–senators, representatives, and officials in the political arena–serve to inspire students. Revised chapters show how social work skills can be most effective, whether by impacting the political arena as a social worker or running for office.
