Jansson's BECOMING AN EFFECTIVE POLICY ADVOCATE teaches you the ins and outs of conducting policy practice, preparing you to become an effective policy advocate during your own career. The eighth edition's coverage includes discussion of such events and issues as Barack Obama's presidency, the presidential primaries and election of 2016, the battle over equality among national politicians in 2016, and many issues facing social agencies. By going beyond the traditional foundational approach to policy, this text helps you develop the skills you need to become an advocate for social change. It offers you practical guidance on how to develop social media campaigns, and discusses ways you can participate in reducing inequality -- the issue that drew the attention of millions of millennials in the presidential election of 2016.
