In this text, best-selling author Karen Kirst-Ashman introduces you to the ins and outs of human behavior in macro settings while helping you develop the necessary skills to think critically about how macro systems affect human behavior and ultimately, the practice of social work. By focusing on empowerment, she highlights the ways that communities, organizations, and groups promote positive change by building upon their strengths-taking you straight to the heart of what social work is all about.
