Advanced Topics in Macro Social Work

SW799, Section 010

This course presents advanced topics in macro social work practice. The topics may include emerging
macro practice issues and advanced application of specific methods.

Topic Description / Additional Information

This course looks at movements, resistance, resilience, and liberation. Community Organizing is one of the most popular areas of specialization to the school of social work. A growing body of evidence reveals that people of color and low-income persons have borne greater environmental and health risks than the society at large in their neighborhood, workplace, and playgrounds. Over the last decade grassroots activists have attempted to change the way governments implement environmental and health laws. Grassroots groups have organized, educated, and empowered themselves to improve the way government regulations and environmental policies are administered.
