Assistant Professor Kerri Evans, PhD, and colleagues have been published in Families in Society: The Journal of Contemporary Social Services. The title of their work is "Opportunities to “Make Macro Matter” through the Grand Challenges for Social Work."


Abstract: The Grand Challenges for Social Work initiative, led by the American Academy of Social Work and Social Welfare (AASWSW), aims to organize the social work profession around 12 entrenched societal challenges. Addressing the root causes of the Grand Challenges will take a coordinated effort across all of social work practice, but given their scale, macro social work will be essential. We use Santiago and colleagues’ Frameworks for Advancing Macro Practice to showcase how macro practices have contributed to local progress on two Grand Challenges. We offer recommendations and a call for the profession to invest in and heed the instrumental role of macro social work practice to address the Grand Challenges.
