Cases in Macro Social Work Practice
Allyn and Bacon, 2000 - Social case work - 262 pages
"An edited work by leading social work professors and practitioners from around the country, this casebook provides macro practice case scenarios that reflect the dilemmas and challenges facing today's social workers." Designed to be provocative and instructive, these well-developed cases present problematic situations that encourage critical thinking, problem-solving, and participation in decision-making processes. Each case consists of a preliminary discussion of theoretical and practice perspectives, the case narrative, and a concluding section of discussion questions and exercises. Based on real-world experiences, the cases reflect current trends such as managed care, total quality management, strategic planning, managing diverse workforces, disabilities, and more. Although all cases raise multiple issues, they are organized into three major sections: Organization Practice, Community Practice, and Policy Practice." For those with an interest in the challenges and resolutions in the field of social work.
