9780830415328: Human Behavior, Communities, Organizations, and Groups in the Macro Social Environment: An Empowerment Approach

This comprehensive book, loaded with case studies, offers a solid foundation for assessment of human behavior in macro settings. Kirst-Ashman offers the reader practical and concrete ways of thinking about how macro systems (or task groups, communities and organizations) affect human behavior, and how these influences have implications for macro social work practice. The theme of empowerment, or building on the strengths of communities, organizations, and groups to promote change, lies at the heart of the profession's goals and central philosophies.
