Abstract

Featuring contributed chapters written by a variety of experts in the field, Integrated Social Work Practice: Bridging Micro, Mezzo, and Macro Level Practice presents vital and contemporary concepts within the discipline as an integrated whole, valuing and examining each topic at the micro through macro level.

Section I introduces students to integrated practice, providing a brief history of social work and examining client systems at the micro, mezzo, and macro levels. Section II focuses on the signature pedagogy of fieldwork and includes interprofessional collaboration, and self-care and wellbeing. In Section III, students explore the social work process—from engagement through termination—at all practice levels. Section IV focuses on social justice, including diversity, equity, and inclusion; anti-racism and multicultural competency; intersectionality; practice with aging and LGBTQ+ populations; and human rights. Students focus on topics related to global engagement in Section V. The final section encourages evaluation, self-reflection, and lifelong learning. Individual and group exercises, practice integration examples, In the Field features, and student narratives support the overall learning experience.
