'...will be welcomed by the experienced practitioner as well as the new professional and volunteer. The book is written clearly and...provides a valuable service to all those involved by explicitly delineating the roles and functions of the volunteer members of the mutual help group, the professional, and the supporting agency, and by highlighting differences between autonomous mutual help groups and those supported by social service organizations.' -- The Journal of Contemporary Social Work, October 1981
Intended for those who want to make a difference in today's modern society, this comprehensive book explores the theory and methods in nine arenas of macro social work at the community, organizational, societal, and global levels of practice. THE PRACTICE OF MACRO SOCIAL WORK, Fourth Edition, challenges readers to use their concern, values, and critical thinking skills to assist those who struggle and have been excluded from making decisions that affect their lives--and to empower these less fortunate individuals to reclaim a healthy social environment for themselves and their children. The book's generalist orientation provides an organizational framework as well as history, biographical material on leading macro social workers, illustrative contemporary examples, and factual data that offers real life detail. Most important is the depth and wealth of practical information that assists readers in understanding how to help people engage in solving social problems, and in influencing social change to bring about a more just society and humane global civilization.

Here is a practical, clearly written volume on how practitioners can develop effective groups. It offers a graphic and well-conceptualized account of two major categories of groups: task groups (committee and planning groups) for solving problems and accomplishing goals; and personal groups (psychotherapy and growth groups) for achieving individual change and developing interpersonal skills. The author utilizes two extensive examples--or continuing "stories"--throughout the volume to demonstrate the applicability of his techniques for group development. In addition, each chapter is devoted to a phase of group development, such as orientation, organization, data flow, and problem solving. Comprehensive as well as practical, this volume will serve as an effective group development roadmap for practitioners and students in counseling, social work, psychology, education, management, and organizational studies. "Conyne's short volume fulfills its promise to be a very practical guide to group work. Its story form is particularly illuminating for beginning students of group process. The stages of group development, the evolution of group leadership skills and the role of the consultant are presented in a way that makes it easy for the instructor to illustrate theories of working with groups. Highly recommended." --University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee "The strength of the book is that the consultant's relationship with task group leader and the mutual sharing between the two counselors in the growth group provide a model for openness, discussion of feelings, problem identification and resolution on a number of important issues related to groups." --AACD Guidepost
