Get a practical, comprehensive, and clearly written introduction to the fundamentals of macro practice with BROOKS/COLE EMPOWERMENT SERIES: GENERALIST PRACTICE WITH ORGANIZATIONS AND COMMUNITIES, 5E, which is now available in paperback and thoroughly updated to reflect the Council on Social Work Education’s (CSWE) latest ethical standards and contemporary issues in social work literature. The authors emphasize the practical skills you’ll need to work effectively in the area of macro practice--providing leadership, working with supervisors, managing conflict, working with the media, using new technological advances, fundraising, grant writing, managing stress, and working in court settings. Learn to build on the one-on-one and group communication skills identified by the authors through their step-by-step plan for community and organizational change. This edition’s realistic vignettes and practical features--hands-on tips, sample forms, and a running case study--aim to deepen your expertise and enhance your performance in the field. At the heart of the book are two models-- Prepare and Imagine--that provide useful frameworks for effective macro social work practice.
