Fourth Edition

Basic Approach:

 

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 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.

 

New to This Edition:

  • Basic concepts of systems theory have been clarified, new comments from former students have been added, and assumptions about macro practice have been updated. (Ch. 1)
  • Updates on the contemporary dimensions of macro practice within their historical context have been used to illustrate how issues such as same-sex marriage, welfare reform, immigration, and disaster relief are played out in macro arenas. (Ch. 2)
  • The strengths perspective is emphasized, adding new examples, and incorporating technological strategies for accessing the professional knowledge base for data and information on populations and problems. (Ch. 3 & 4)
  • The ordering and presentation of theoretical material on community has been updated and revised, using a new matrix to guide readers to differences between descriptive and prescriptive theories. (Ch.5)
  • Examples that focus on non-place as well as place-based communities, have been added, recognizing that the assessment tool in the appendix can be used for both. (Ch. 6)
  • More detail has been added to the planned change model to make it more explicit.  Examples now focus on community as well as organizational change, recognizing that community or policy-level outcomes are different from direct practice interventions.  Many boxes have been added to this part. (Ch. 9, 10 & 11)
  • Throughout the book, updates ground the concept of macro practice within recent literature and the use of technological resources.

What the reviewers are saying…


Tracy Soska, University of Pittsburgh

“Once again, Social Work Macro Practice remains the most complete text to pull together community and organizational practice for social workers.  I would continue to use it, and I have strongly recommended it to faculty at other institutions…”

 

Robert Vernon, Indiana University, Purdue

“I think the Netting book is an ‘easy read’ book.  I really like the text boxes that they use to summarize concepts.  I also like the vignettes that they use to connect concept application.”

 

Jong B. Choi, California State University—Bakersfield,

“I think the approach of Social Work Macro Practice goes very well with my teaching methods, which is two-way interaction method.  Students easily understand the content and apply to their own experiences, which boosts discussion in the class.”
