Dr. Shannon Lane, author of "Political Social Work: Using Power to Create Social Change and Social Welfare Policy in a Changing World," discusses her book at the School of Social Work. Lane is a pioneer and leader in the field of political social worker and professor at Wurzweiler School of Social Work. Lane began her political career in her undergraduate studies by working for the United States Senate and then pursued her MSW from U-M.
She will discuss how to engage individuals and communities in voting, influencing policy agendas and seekings and holding elected office. Lane will introduce critical thinking exercises in the areas of power, empowerment and conflict; planning political interventions; empowering voters; persuasive political communication; and making ethical decisions in political social work. The seminar will also touch on the roots of social workers historically involved in political action to challenge systemic social inequality.
