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. Best-selling author Karen Kirst-Ashman provides readers with practical and concrete ways of thinking about how macro systems affect human behavior, and how these influences have implications for macro social work practice. 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.
