Since the publication of its first edition in 2005,ÂAdvocacy Practice for Social JusticeÂhas served as a clear, comprehensive, and practical resource for social work courses in advocacy, community practice, and macro practice. Now in its fourth edition, this text provides extensive information on the value base for advocacy; an examination of why people get involved in advocacy; and step-by-step instructions for social workers and others who want to impact laws, regulations, and policies at any level. Bearing in mind the National Association of Social Workers' Code of Ethics' requirements to advocate on behalf of vulnerable populations, readers learn that advocacy is a problem-solving technique similar to that used in social work practice of all types. The book moves through the stages of advocacy: getting involved; understanding the issue; planning; advocating through education, persuasion, and negotiation; presenting information effectively; monitoring and evaluating results; and integrating advocacy into a social worker's everyday practice. The fourth edition's inclusion of new topics and solid foundation in social work values make it a must-read as social work students and practitioners work diligently to maintain the profession's focus on successful advocacy for social justice.

The instability of today’s economic climate calls for non-profit organizations to approach social problems in new and interesting ways, and Information and Communication Technologies may serve as an answer to this call.

This innovative reference work will discuss how ICT enables the non-profit sector to achieve organizational efficiency, effectiveness, and, ultimately, self sufficiency, and will provide elected and appointed policymakers, managers, and planners in governments, public agencies, and nonprofit organizations with a comprehensive strategy for creating an ICT management agenda in the non-profit sector.
