"The authors do a masterful job emphasizing the importance of macro-level practice and its integration into daily, micro-level social work. Throughout each of the developmental stages, they show the relevance of macro-concepts, rooted in applicable theory, and the impact it has on each respective stage. It bridges the gap between micro and macro practice and enhances traditional HBSE texts by doing so."— Chad Morse, University of Alaska-Anchorage
