Through case examples the book illustrates how principles of social justice, empowerment, and cultural awareness can be applied in different cultural contexts. Additionally, the cases demonstrate the implication of the nation's increasing demographic and cultural diversity on the practice of macro social work.
Through various exercises, students apply critical thinking skills to resolve practical and ethical dilemmas and make the types of difficult decisions that practitioners confront every day. The book also addresses how recent political events, cultural developments, and social changes have altered both the context and the content of macro social work practice in the United States.
Macro Social Work Practice is appropriate for undergraduate and graduate courses in social work, family and community development, public health, nursing, and human services.
