Summary

HUMAN BEHAVIOR IN THE MACRO SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT: AN EMPOWERMENT APPROACH TO UNDERSTANDING COMMUNITIES, ORGANIZATIONS, AND GROUPS offers a solid foundation for assessment of human behavior in macro settings.

The book focuses on empowerment, building on the strengths of communities, organizations, and groups to promote change -- which lies at the heart of social work’s goals and central philosophies.
