HUMAN BEHAVIOR IN THE MACRO SOCIAL ENVIRONMENT takes students to the heart of what social work is all about-helping them promote positive change by building upon the strengths of macro systems. Authors Karen Kirst-Ashman and Grafton Hull provide a comprehensive overview of human behavior in a macro setting, while citing real-world practice and case studies to support theories and their application. They focus on empowerment-encouraging communities, organizations and groups to promote change from the inside out. They also prompt students to think critically about how macro systems affect human behavior and shape social work practice. Aligned with current EPAS standards, the fifth edition offers up-to-date coverage of issues on environmental justice, cognitive restructuring, effective teams, organizational culture, faith-based social services and health care, among other topics.Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
