Social Work Policy Practice in Action
The first video module serves as an introduction, inspiring social work students to explore advocacy opportunities and discover their individual passions. Later video modules focus on specific populations or issues, such as poverty, mental illness, the criminal justice system, and more. The videos provide students with concrete depictions of marginalized populations and the complex systems of society and government that can either serve or oppress those individuals.
Supplementary written material and discussion questions build upon what students have viewed in the videos, challenging them to think critically about marginalization and oppression, and encouraging them to thoughtfully analyze and advocate for policies that best serve both marginalized individuals and society as a whole.
Designed to offer instructors and students an interactive and engaging way to approach social work policy, Social Work Policy Practice in Action is ideal for courses in social work policy, social work, human diversity, sociology, and criminal justice.
