Navigating Policy and Practice in the Great Recession is a fictional narrative that follows Martha White, the intrepid executive director of a small non-profit organization, as she navigates policy practice and demonstrates enlightened administrative leadership in the years during and
following the Great Recession. Based on the authors' 20-plus years of experience in non-profit management and the evaluation of more than 40 welfare-to-work programs, the narrative encompasses a broad range of policies, programs, and critical issues related to macro-practice and organizational
leadership. Readers will be exposed to the causes and consequences of the Great Recession and learn the real-life implications of policy and practice on the lives of vulnerable families and the social service system. Engaging for students and helpful for professors, the text is ideal for to social
work, social policy, and social justice introductory courses.
