Future of Macro Social Work

F. Ellen Netting

Abstract


Macro social work is social work. History tells us that the profession was birthed from diverse traditions were grounded in different assumptions, spurring different ways of knowing and doing. This versatility is a hallmark of the field and it will serve macro social work well into the future. A profession that seeks to sustain, advocate and change, with the intent of increasing quality of life, will always need practitioners who can recognize diverse world views, understand multilayered contexts, deal with limitless inter-connections, and be invigorated by conflict.
