From the Publisher"I would describe this book to a colleague by emphasizing what I see are the book's essential qualities: (It) covers brief methods and fits with today's managed care perspective; (it) addresses contextual issues such as ethnic families, gay clients, and gender issues; (it) addresses the unique concerns of social work; and (it) is readable and understandable for students. I would adopt this book for our family-centered social work practice course."
"Yes, I will adopt this text! It goes beyond just a review of family therapy models and includes the trend towards the integration of services, placing emphasis on the value of a brief systems approach to social work with families."
"I would adopt this text for my graduate level family practice classes because it covers needed and timely topics in a concise way. It has as understandable framework well adapted to graduate study. The case examples provide a 'real' world context for learning. I find the manuscript easy to read and understandable."
