Overview

This text is designed to promote advocacy into social work curricula in response to the new NASW Code of Ethics and its emphasis on advocacy, as well as the Curriculum Policy Statement of CSWE that promotes social and economic justice. In an effort to clarify what advocacy actually is and does, the authors created a new practice framework so that social workers can approach advocacy in a systematic way. Along with a practice framework, this text gives an overview of the history of advocacy and hands-on skill building to enhance the reader's effectiveness as an advocate.
