Policy Practice: The Neglected Side of Social Work Intervention.
Figueira-McDonough, Josefina
Social Work, v38 n2 p179-88 Mar 1993
Argues that social work has been more devoted to self-determination than to social justice. Proposes that implementation of social justice requires commitment to policy practice. Reviews literature to identify methods of policy practice: legislative advocacy, reform through litigation, social action, and social policy analysis. Analyzes each method in terms of characteristics, specific social work roles, and potential effectiveness. (Author/NB)
