Social Welfare Policy for a Sustainable Future : The U.S. in Global Context, Paperback / softback Book

Social Welfare Policy for a Sustainable Future : The U.S. in Global Context Paperback / softback

Description

Unique in its use of a sustainability framework, Social Welfare Policy for a Sustainable Future goes beyond U.S. borders to examine U.S. government policies -- including child welfare, social services, health care, and criminal justice -- within a global context.

Guided by the belief that forces from the global market and globalization affect all social workers in their practice, the book addresses a wide range of relevant topics, including immigration by refugees, the impact of new technologies, war trauma, and restorative justice.

A sustainability policy analysis model and an ecosystems framework for trauma-informed care are also presented in this timely text.
