Synopsis Skills in advocacy are essential for every social work student and practitioner. This accessible book provides an introduction to advocacy, examining the theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed to undertake advocacy roles and work constructively with the growing number of independent advocates.

Beginning with the historical background to advocacy and its place within social work, the book explores different definitions and understandings of advocacy and explores a range of practice models, presenting a multi-dimensional model as an analytic framework.

The second part of the book focuses on practice and looks at process models of advocacy and how advocacy fits with social work methods and theories of intervention. Finally, the book examines a range of issues which will impact on the future of advocacy.

Advocacy and Social Work Practice is ideal for social work students and is also suitable for a wide range of practitioners who are either undertaking advocacy roles or working with independent advocates to achieve the best outcome for a client.
