dc.description A Practicum Report Submitted to the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree of Master of Social Work, University of Regina. iv, 56 p. en_US
dc.description.abstract This practicum report is about low income people in Regina, the Regina Anti-Poverty Ministry (RAPM), and the journey of the writer to learn about poverty in its true colour. The report partly retells the self-exploration of the writer regarding low income people in Regina, her awareness of the deplorable conditions that low income people in Regina, and possible causes for damages in the lives of low income people. The report looks at the work of RAPM in the three following areas: 1) individual advocacy, 2) public education, and 3) social justice. The staff members at RAPM do not work by themselves to bring change to policies and regulations of the government. They work in collaboration with many community based organizations, non-governmental organizations, government organizations, self-advocates, and researchers to use case advocacy for cause advocacy. RAPM has achieved many successes in the individual advocacy area, public education area, and social justice area. The successes of RAPM have inspired me to be a social work advocate who is determined to bring change to the world around me. en_US
