Social Work Macro Practice, Third Edition
F. Ellen Netting, Virginia Commonwealth University
Peter M. Kettner, Arizona State University
Steven L. McMurtry, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

Social Work Macro Practice focuses on work with organizations and communities, including planned change approaches and implementation. The text is distinguished by its unique practice model that shows students how to use communities and organizations to help clients, and a strong emphasis is placed on the iterative nature of planned change and the necessity of preparing oneself for conflict in any change effort.

Highlights of the Third Edition:

  • New chapter on implementation takes the reader beyond planning change and discusses implementation issues.
  • 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.
  • Material on human service systems is now integrated throughout text
  • New discussion questions and exercises at the end of every chapter allow students to further explore the concepts they read about.

Review:

Here's what the reviewers are saying...

 

“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...”

Tracy Soska, University of Pittsburgh
