Human Service Program Planning Through a Social Justice Lens
(Routledge, 2022)

Image of book: Program Planning Through a Social Justice LensProgram Planning Through a Social Justice Lens provides a foundation in social justice to students while developing practical skills and knowledge about the steps and tasks involved in planning social programs. Through the "parallel process" of contextualizing social issues while teaching the process of program planning, students will develop a perspective on the need for social justice planning and its impact on marginalized communities and populations. The textbook explores current concepts and approaches to understanding social issues and involving impacted communities and individuals. These include intersectionality, appreciative inquiry, participatory planning, and visioning that serve to challenge preconceptions while coupling these with the step-by-step approach to planning using the Logic Model. Using meaningful examples to demonstrate how social justice planning can be implemented, Program Planning Through a Social Justice Lens is appropriate for students of social work as well as practitioners in human services, public administration, and public health.

Nesoff received a Ph.D. in Social Welfare in 1998 from the CUNY Graduate Center.
