Micro- or Macro-Orientation? Israeli Students' Career Interests in an Antisocial Era
Segal-Engelchin, Dorit; Kaufman, Roni
Journal of Social Work Education, v44 n3 p139-157 Fall 2008
The growing interest in social work education in Israel over the past 5 years, despite its current social and political context, was the impetus for this study, which attempted to identify the practice orientations of 119 incoming BSW students in an antisocial era. Two distinct, equal-size clusters were found. Half of the students were micropractice oriented, indicating greater interest in working with individuals, couples, and families. The other half were macropractice oriented, more interested in working with communities and in policy-practice and social change activities. Conclusions and implications for social work education are discussed. (Contains 2 figures and 5 tables.)
