Product description


Advocacy is a skill used by many people in human service organizations - for example, social workers, community medical staff and advice workers. This book sets out guidelines for the effective professional practice of advocacy so as to get past obstacles and secure tangible results.

From the Author

Why I wrote this book
I wrote "Advocacy Skills" because of the need for people like advice workers, social care staff, nurses, trade union officials to act as advocates. There are several books around on advocacy skills for lawyers, yet nothing for those advocates who regularly work with some of the poorest and most socially excluded in our society. The book has become a recomended text on many higher education courses and has also been translated into Japanese.
