As a social worker, often you need to use your policy advocacy skills to ensure that your clients are receiving the services that they need. Although you may tend to think of policy advocacy skills as separate from your clinical social work skills, they are very similar.

Think of the skills that you would use in working with a client such as Jake Levy. How could you apply these skills to policy advocacy? How will you use these skills to identify the policy and social problems that are impacting these families?

In this week’s Discussion, you will continue to follow the Levy, Bradley, Petrakis, and Cortez families to start the process of policy advocacy.

In this Discussion, select one of the four integrated videos and identify the problems experienced by the client(s).

Post your responses to the following: (Use subheadings and 1 additional APA peer reviewed reference and be detailed in response.) (Jake Levy is client. Use sub-heading, be detailed in response and use 1 additional APA reference)

  • Who is defining the problem?
  • What values are reflected in this definition of the problem?
  • What is being omitted in this definition?
  • What other problems do you see that are not being acknowledged?
