Macro-Level Social Work
Imagine the Campbells’ town has just experienced a tornado. The town is devastated. Schools, businesses, and multiple homes are damaged. The town contacts you to be part of the crisis team to attend the town meeting.
Social work action often occurs on the macrosystems level. This week’s readings discuss macro-level interventions, including the following:
- Engaging community.
- Application of policy.
Using your chosen peer-reviewed article or scholarly based Web site that provides macro-level trauma or solution-focused best practice interventions, complete the following for this discussion question:
- Provide a summary of your source’s recommended macro-based community best-practice intervention. How would you apply it to this situation?
- Provide an example of how you would demonstrate leadership through empowerment, motivation, and teamwork to assist this community.
- Identify one local resource (in your community) that you could utilize that provides trauma-informed care interventions. Provide the name of the agency, their Web site, and how you could utilize this agency in the case of community-based trauma.
- Provide APA, evidence-based references.
Apps in Application
After searching for and reviewing several app ideas in this unit’s studies, choose one to describe in detail. What population might you use this app with? Can you think of any potential issues with using the app?
Is There an App for That?
If you were to design your own app or other technological tool to address a social work issue, what would the tool be? What social work issue does it address? What population does it target? Can you think of any potential problems with your app idea?
