The Macro Change Handbook: Organizing For Advocacy - Formal Steps to Macro Change

In his newest and fourth book on community inclusion for persons with disabilities, Al Condeluci focuses on the change process. Do you change the person who has a disability or special needs or do you change the environment? By addressing both, Condeluci explores the meaning and methods for micro and macro change. Taking a broader look at advocacy, he builds on the key concepts and theories of organizing with lots of examples of advocacy for both individual as well as systemic cultural change. This pragmatic approach to advocacy and community change is a practical handbook that will guide any advocate – family member, individual, provider or policy analyst through the nitty gritty of promoting and achieving real change for persons with disabilities and the community.

Social Capital: The Key to Macro Change

Shifting from the “micro” model found in so many policies and procedures that approach the person with a physical, mental, or emotional disability as “the problem,” this new book on social capital by Condeluci and Fromknecht offers a “macro” approach for human services in the community and for people with disabilities. By helping people find their commonality, disabilities matter less. This is an essential book for any provider or organization involved in clinical care, residential services, and support services. It will challenge readers to self-examine their policies and program models and recognize that we are all interdependent.
