Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
This workbook provides a wide range of exercises, role playing activities and case scenarios to help students practice specific macro skills. The text's versatility allows it to be the primary text in a practice course or as a supplement to accompany other macro theory texts, especially GENERALIST PRACTICE WITH ORGANIZATIONS AND COMMUNITIES, 2nd by the same authors! The authors integrate macro development for field internships, as well as enhance macro skill development for social workers in the field. Specific macro practice skills are presented in a straightforward manner, and both applications to actual macro practice situations and the importance of client system strengths are emphasized throughout.
