Empowerment Series: the Reluctant Welfare State by
Call Number: HN57.J25 2019 (USG - course reserves)
Social welfare programs often get blamed for the nation's budget woes. Is that fair? Gain insight into our "reluctant" social welfare system. Jansson analyzes the evolution of the American welfare state from colonial times to the present--placing social policy in its political, cultural and societal context. You'll interact with the issues, oppressed populations, ethical choices, social and ideological conflicts, advocates and policies in preceding eras and in the contemporary period. You'll see how vulnerable populations and social reformers have achieved progressive reforms through policy advocacy. This book will help you develop the core competencies and practice behaviors outlined in the Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) set by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE).
