What are the two factors that differentiate macro generalist practice on one hand, and micro and mezzo generalist practice (small sized groups) on the other hand? Which is more difficult?
Macro generalist practice follows the basic planned change process of engagement, assessment, planning, implementation, evaluation, termination, and follow-up used in working with individuals, families, and groups. First – the change process for macro involves many more people and systems than working with smaller sized groups. Second- a large part of macro gen practice requires support from colleagues and influencing decision makers to effect change at the macro level. Macro planned change process is more difficult than that of micro or mezzo.
