Taylor, Eleanor D.


Whether you are a professor of social work, a social agency executive or a beginning student of advocacy, empowerment & community organization, this book will show you what makes an advocacy program successful. Using a case history method to explain its concepts, FROM ISSUE TO ACTION leads the reader through a step-by-step process of advocacy program development. Taylor uses insights from actual experience to show how an agency can build accountability, set up clear criteria for choosing issues, develop an effective Study-Action Team as a power base for action &, finally, evaluate the process. Dr. Lewis of Cleveland State University's Social Work Department says: "Since I have used this book, both students & field agency personnel feel less threatened by the idea of organizational & community change. It seems both 'legitimate' & 'doable.'" Dr. Scott Wilson of Temple University's School of Social Administration feels: "This program model is sensitive to the diverse concerns of staff, board & consumers & provides meaningful approaches to their empowerment. This book belongs in every agency's professional library." To order: Send $14.50 plus $1.05 postage per book to Family Service, 630 Janet Avenue, Lancaster, PA 17601.
