As social workers, we are often in the position to identify problems or issues that exist within our community that are not being addressed or are not being addressed adequately due to any number of reasons. Social Work practice at the macro level allows us to not only identify and address issues that affect organizations and/or communities, but also often requires us to partner with others as we attempt to ameliorate or resolve the identified problem or issue.
