Jansson's BECOMING AN EFFECTIVE POLICY ADVOCATE goes beyond the traditional foundational approach to policy and helps students develop the skills they need to become advocates for social change.

Policy Advocacy Challenges allow students to apply concepts to actual examples. Examples are included from the Barack Obama presidency and the 2016 presidential primaries and elections, with particular emphasis on policies related to inequality. Part of the Brooks/Cole Empowerment Series, the eighth edition is completely up to date and integrates the core competencies and recommended practices in the CSWE's 2016 Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS).

Social Welfare Policy and Advocacy: Advancing Social Justice through 8 Policy Sectors provides the first framework that links micro, mezzo, and macro policy advocacy, demonstrating how each type can be used to promote social justice in health, gerontology, safety net, child welfare, education, immigrants/global, mental health, and criminal justice sectors.

Integrated vignettes, video clips, and robust resources underscore the text's hands-on, advocacy approach. Relevant to many Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) including policy practice, the book is designed for policy foundation courses.

Much more than a historical look at America's social welfare system, this acclaimed book offers insights into our ambivalent social welfare policy and its impact on specific out-groups--African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, women, and others--that are often overlooked in other texts. In addition to comprehensive coverage of the historical development of the welfare system, author Bruce S. Jansson also analyzes its limits, strengths, and policies...how its evolution and structure compare with systems in other countries...and the effects of policy changes on the future of the social work profession. As they explore Jannson's highly respected text, your students will see how understanding historical events can be powerfully relevant to the study of current social welfare policy and the profession of social work. The book analyzes the evolution of the American welfare state from colonial times to present and places social policy in its political, cultural, and societal context. Using social policy as a catalyst, Jansson invites students to think critically about issues, developments, and policies in prior eras and in contemporary society. He encourages students to become social reformers and to develop their own policy identities.

BASICS OF HUMAN BEHAVIOR Absorbing, easy to read and understand, here is a fascinating presentation of Freud’s principal theories on psychology. Culled from forty years of writing by the founder of psychoanalysis, this is the first book which gives, in a comprehensive and systematic form, Freud’s thinking on the organization, dynamics and development of the normal human personality. Calvin S. Hall outlines Freud’s penetrating diagnosis of the balances existing between the mind and emotions, and points out his important discoveries about the parts played by instincts, the conscious and unconscious, and anxiety in the functioning of the human psyche. In discussing the elements that form personality, the author explains the ideas of the pioneer thinker in psychology on defense mechanisms, the channeling of instinctual drives, and the role of sex in the boy and girl maturing into man and woman. Lucid, illuminating and instructive, this is an important book for everyone who wants to understand human behavior—in himself and in others. “A Primer of Freudian Psychology is compact, readable, accurate.”—Gordon W. Allport, Professor of Psychology, Harvard University
