Throughout the book the authors help students logically develop practice with appropriate theoretical underpinnings and show them how they can be significant actors in larger systems. The authors chose to stress the use of the generalist model with larger systems and create an overarchingintegrated social work theory. In addition, they integrate possible practice responses with selected relevant human behavior knowledge. The authors stress critical thinking and problem solving which should help practitioners engage in relevant and accountable practices. The authors believe that whensocial workers feel comfortable and capable doing macropractice, they will then possess the necessary skills to help the community become empowered. This affordably priced core paperback is structured to be supplemented by additional readings and a teacher's own thoughts and social workexperiences.
