Community Social Work Practice in an Urban Context

Melvin Delgado

Oxford University Press

This chapter analyzes what makes an urban setting attractive for macro social work practice using an assets paradigm. The chapter is divided into two sections. The first section analyzes what makes murals, gardens, community-built playgrounds, and sculptures important to urban communities and identifies the common developmental aspects of these community capacity-enhancement projects. The second section addresses the unique developmental tasks associated with each of the four community capacity-enhancement projects and highlights their key conceptual and practice differences, and discusses what makes them important to the community, any aspects that are culture specific to a group, and the implications for social work education and practice.

Keywords:   community capacity-enhancement, urban social work, social work practice, macro social work, murals, gardens, playgrounds, sculptures, urban communities
