Summary

Social Work Macro Practice focuses on work with organizations and communities, including planned change approaches and implementation.

This new edition of Social Work Macro Practice has been thoroughly updated and revised to make it an even stronger and more user-friendly text. The authors have designed the book to mesh well with a variety of contemporary policy texts and emphasize that planned change approaches, such as the one presented herein, occur within a political environment that is constantly changing.

Features :

  • Distinguished by its unique practice model that shows students how to use communities and organizations to help clients.
  • Strong emphasis on the iterative nature of planned change and the necessity of preparing oneself for conflict in any change effort.
  • New To This Edition
  • New chapter on implementation takes the reader beyond planning change and discusses implementation issues (Ch. 11).
  • Chapter on problems and target populations has been developed into two distinct chapters (one on problems and one on populations), emphasizing the importance of recognizing diversity among population groups involved in change efforts (Chs. 3 & 4).
  • The community material in the text has been reorganized. Originally there were three chapters dealing with community theory, community assessment, and human service systems, now human service systems is integrated throughout the text.
  • New discussion questions and exercises at the end of every chapter allow students to further explore the concepts.
