Dr. Quinn provides a review on related research and programs and effectiveness. A presentation of the model program provides most of the materials an individual or agency would need to begin to implement the program. A practitioner might take activities from the model program and integrate them into an existing program.
A breakthrough on family and community treatment of youth at risk. This book takes the reader inside a model that is effective, collaborative, and respectful of what families can offer one another in preventing more serious problems in the future. I loved learning the nitty-gritties about how this model works in the real world, including early mistakes and current challenges in using this novel approach--a testament to Bill Quinn's honesty and transparency. I was inspired from start to finish.
