Therapeutic Intervention with Poor, Unorganized Families: From Distress to Hope offers you integrated theory, practice, and research to provide you with the tools to be more effective when dealing with families in crisis. Therapeutic Intervention with Poor, Unorganized Families explores the decline of families into extreme distress and helps you to determine the best intervention for each family because no one single method can be prescribed for all families and situations. This book offers you new techniques to help make a difference by using home-based interventions such as having the entire family and therapist meet in the home on a weekly basis.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

This book provides social workers, physicians, psychologists, counselors, and family therapists with tested interventions to help disadvantaged families deal with the problems they encounter. You will learn new techniques for intervention and how to organize institutions in your community to help families in extreme distress. Containing case studies, evaluations of techniques, and supervision and training processes, this book will help you become more successful when providing services to distressed and disorganized families.
