The Policy-Based Profession provides a process for analyzing policies to help you with your career 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. A 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.
