Description: Now available in paperback format and thoroughly updated to reflect the latest CSWE ethical standards and current social work literature, this hands-on text offers a practical, user-friendly, and comprehensive introduction to foundation macro practice. Encouraging students to build on their one-on-one (micro) and group (mezzo) communication skills, the authors outline a guided, step-by-step plan for community and organizational change. Two models--PREPARE and IMAGINE--form the heart of the book, providing students with valuable frameworks for effective macro social work practice. A running case study illustrates these models in action. The authors' coverage of such skills as working with the media, using new technological advances, fund-raising, grant writing, and working within court settings--as well as lively vignettes and a wide variety of Highlights that include hands-on tips and sample forms--further enhance your students' expertise.
