In this text for both undergraduates and graduates in social work, Kirst-Ashman (University of Wisconsin-Whitewater) and Hull (University of Utah) review organizational and community social work theory and present real-world situations and case examples from a generalist perspective, emphasizing that micro, mezzo, and macro skills are interlinked. They provide step-by-step frameworks for initiating change in communities and for specific skills such as working with the media and fund-raising. This third edition features updated and new material on areas such as people with physical disabilities, organizations serving refugees, and social work in rural areas.
