TIMELY AND HELPFUL FOR SOCIAL WORK STUDENTS, EDUCATORS, AND PRACTITIONERS. . . . The reader is treated to a wide continuum of intervention strategies, population groups, and policy/programs that should be in place to help children and families cope with the problems of living. . . . Presents six practice intervention approaches with selected at-risk populations. Among the innovative micro- and meso-intervention strategies are bibliotherapy, social and family support, and community practice models that are tools for working with children and families in various contextual situations. Furthermore, policy, programs, and an analysis of emerging families address macro interventions with grandparents, lesbian and gay families, homeless women with children, and neighborhoods, as well as the areas of child welfare and family health. Case study illustrations connect practice principles to child and family concerns. I commend the editor and contributors for this fresh effort to shape the emerging area of family health practice.
