Product Description There is no good substitute for what family can provide for the growth and development of its members. In a diverse and constantly changing world, practitioners aim to help families improve relationships between members and with their environment. This book successfully illustrates how social work practice can identify, utilize, build upon, and reinforce the unique strengths of families to help family systems become more effective and just in the face of certain challenges. The authors integrate the most recent developments in theory, technique, and research into the century-old tradition of social work practice with families and couples. Constable and Lee have developed a clear, flexible, strengths-based approach that accommodates family and individual intervention and multiple methodologies, as well as the social institutional contexts in which social workers practice.
