Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Social workers' involvement in policy practice is often described as limited, despite social work's ecological and holistic view of social problems. One explanation for this could be social workers' perception of policy-directed practices as unfeasibly implemented within the framework of their daily actions and existing professional knowledge. This article wishes to propose an accessible and useful new approach for meso-level social policy practice, using a combination of agency advocacy and organisational development theory.
