    2 Chapter 1 • Defining Policy Practice in Social Work BOX A Definition of Policy Practice Policy practice is defined as using social work skills to propose and change policies in order to achieve the goal of social and economic justice. This book, edited by a leader in the field, is an attempt to present and tie social justice to the core values of social work across the curriculum. It presents the history and philosophy that supports social justice and ties it to ethical concepts which help students understand social justice as a core social work value.

    At its foundation, the concept of social justice involves making everything equal and leveling the playing field for everyone. Social workers deal with the problem of deprivation every day. In addition to how social justice is seen, and to what remedies are recommended by different parties, one injustice often leads to another.   Just Practice provides a foundation for critical and creative social work that focuses on the profession's historical commitment to social justice. The book integrates theory, skills, ethics, and rights and responds to the complex terrain of 21st century social work. Just Practice moves Brand: Oxford University Press.
