Specialized Practice Curricular Guide for Macro Social Work Practice

The Specialized Practice Curricular Guide for Macro Social Work Practice outlines three (3) primary focus areas: organizational administration and management, community organizing, and policy practice. It uses a unifying framework to identify commonalities while honoring the unique differences of each focus area. This guide was developed through a partnership between CSWE and the Special Commission to Advance Macro Practice, with generous support from the Fund for Social Policy Education and Practice.

The Encyclopedia of Macro Social Work

The Encyclopedia of Macro Social Work (EOMSW) offers nearly 200 long-form overview articles that address macro practice methods (organizations, community, policy) as well as macro theories, concepts, ideologies, problems, and contexts relating to macro social work.

It includes an introduction to the field of macro practice and topical guides for students and researchers while updating and expanding upon all of the macro content in the Encyclopedia of Social Work to create a multi-volume work unlike any other.
