Summary

"Thoroughly updated to reflect the latest trends in social work education and current social work literature, this text gives you comprehensive, user-friendly information - everything you need to gain an understanding of social work practice in communities and organizations. With practical material that will help you build on your one-on-one (micro) and group (mezzo) communication skills, the authors present a guided, step-by-step plan for community and organization change. Two models - PREPARE and IMAGINE - form the heart of the book, giving you valuable frameworks for effective macro social work practice. Throughout much of the book, a running case study illustrated these modes in action."--BOOK JACKET.
