The events over the past few weeks have raised some questions about just what is social work doing in order to improve the quality of life of people in this country. Social work talks about its role as addressing the person-in-environment but what is being covered in social work content to truly address the person-in-environment context? Are there enough human service professionals trained in macro practice to truly make a difference?

This special Dialogue show will be with members of ACOSA's (Association for Community Organization and Social Administration) Special Commission on Macro Practice. They include Mark Homan, Jack Rothmann, Kelsey De Aavila, Sue Edgerton and Linda Plitt Donaldson. They will discuss why Macro Matters. How does the profession balance the micro-macro dichotomy to make sure that macro content is adequately addressed? What are the implications on licensing if one chooses to be a macro oriented practitioner? What are the job prospects for macro practitioners?These topics and others will be the focus of this special Dialogue radio show. The show will be Monday, December 15, 2015 at 8:30 pm Eastern Standard Time (5:30 pm Pacific Standard Time).

Dialogue is part of The American Family Blog Talk Radio and can be found at: The-American-Family National Blog Radio.

One can listen to the show through the web site. To participate with your questions or comments, call: 347-327-9168.

Join us Monday, December 15 at 8:30 pm EST for this important topic.
