A thoroughly up-to-date look at the field of social work using a unique macro practice model focused on making changes within diverse communities and organizations.

Social Work Macro Practice approaches the field of social work recognizing that all social workers must be able to engage, assess, and intervene with individuals, families, groups, organizations, and communities. It focuses on enabling social work practitioners to undertake whatever types of macro-level interventions are needed in an informed, analytical manner, confident that they can do a competent job and achieve positive results. Bringing readers up to date on the latest changes in the field, this practice-oriented edition integrates many field-based vignettes and examples throughout and elaborates a planned change model introduced in previous editions. Among the numerous updates, improvements, and new material, the new edition incorporates material on international/global content, pays special attention to the use of technology, and reinforces the role of advocacy in all aspects of social work practice.
