Editorial Reviews

Booknews

Vosler (social work, Washington U., St. Louis) considers the economic stress of paid and family work, unemployment, and poverty on the family system, outlining specific assessment tools, interventions, evaluations, and strategies for social change that can be used by social workers in each case.
