In chapters 1 and 2, Jannson (2019) discusses that social workers are required by the National Social Workers’ Code of Ethics to be advocates of policies that advance ethical principles. Towards that effort, they interact with policies on three levels: micro, mezzo, and macro policy interventions. In a two-page, double-spaced response address the following:
- Define social justice and why we seek to advance social justice
- Explain the National Social Workers’ Code of Ethics view on micro, mezzo and macro advocacy policy and describe how it assists in your engagement as a human service professional with a vulnerable population. Be sure to incorporate how you would think through the use of the Eight Policy Sectors.
