Macro Social Workers Discuss the Rothman Commission
By Rachel L. West

Macro Social Workers participate in the first #MacroSW chat to discuss the Rothman Commission and how to advocate for community practice
The inaugural #MacroSW chat was held last night on Twitter and it was a wonderful and lively conversation. Most of the participant appeared to be social work students and recent grads. They discussed there concerns about finding a macro level job, how to get macro social work more respect within the profession, and why it is important for there to be a balance between micro and macro.
The chat was held as part of a new collaborative formed by ACOSA, NSWM, Social Work Helper, USC School of Social Work, UB School of Social Work, MSWSN, and Karen Zgoda.
