Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


Social Work Practice with Families uses resiliency-a strength-based perspective-to frame a collaborative approach to assessment and treatment with families. In so doing, the text aims to help practitioners select a therapeutic model that effectively assists in addressing risk factors and promoting important resources. The book provides clear examples of the elements in a strength-affirming assessment and engagement process, discusses resiliency in terms of families belonging to various cultural groups and family structures, and identifies resiliency issues and implications for practice with families facing major problems. Including current evaluation research from the United States, Canada, and around the globe, the text serves as a helpful resource to undergraduate and graduate social work students and practitioners.
