This innovative book demonstrates how one model draws a variety of theories and components of theory into practical use-helping your students see the many, creative ways that theory can be applied to real-life generalist practice, at micro, mezzo, and macro levels. Effectively organized to illustrate how theories can complement each other, Robert L. Jackson's THE CLUBHOUSE MODEL: EMPOWERING APPLICATIONS OF THEORY TO GENERALIST PRACTICE describes an empowering model for generalist practice, a comprehensive approach designed to address the community support needs of adults with mental illness. This model originated in New York City and has been replicated all over the world. The model serves as a template and powerful heuristic device for the illustration of how theory and components of theory are applied in generalist practice. Jackson covers essential aspects of a range of human behavior theories and components of theory. He relates these aspects of theory to a widely respected generalist practice example, the clubhouse model. He shows how theory and components of theory inform and guide community building practice roles.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A viable illustration of how theory can be put into practice…Clearly demonstrates the application of the generalist practice perspective . . . Well written…Easy to read."

" is written clearly, and uses practical examples, definitions, etc. . . This material does a much better job of presenting content (theory, etc.) on the systems perspective and ecological perspective than any others which I have seen."

"A unique way of organizing practice information, making it easy for students to understand how theory and practice are related…Provides information relevant to many of the courses in the social work curriculum."

"A valuable addition to the literature . . . Brings theory to life and encourages the reader to examine his or her own 'practice theory.'"
