Designed to enhance social work's mission as a reform-oriented profession, this edition of Bruce Jansson's text provides a
hands-on framework for helping social workers develop specific skills they can use to actually change policy in their professional
careers. The third edition builds on the doing policy practice framework of the previous edition (presented in Chapter 3)
by providing a new focus on policy advocacy - policy practice geared toward helping oppressed, stigmatized, or powerless out-groups.
