Working with Families: An Integrative Model by Level of Need
Pearson/Allyn & Bacon, 2006 - Psychology - 278 pages
Working with Familiespresents an innovative model for choosing specific intervention methods that meet the discriminate level of need of a particular family. This is one of the few texts that addresses work with families from a social worker's perspective. It assesses families by their level of need, from the most basic level (needs for food, clothing, and shelter) to more advanced levels (needs for intimacy and self-actualization), and provides students with models for assessment and interventions at each level. While other family practice texts present many different models of family work and many fields of practice, often focused on middle-class, private practice clients (leaving students feeling undecided about which model to use and when), this text provides an integrative model with guidelines for when and how to use different practice methods. Several new authors have contributed to the Fouth Edition. A new section on Ethical Challenges is included for each method of practice chapter to help students give special thought to this important area of practice.And each practice method chapter now includes Internet Resources to assist students and faculty in accessing new and relevant material.An Instructor's Manual is available to supplement this edition as an aid to instructors and to the learning experience of students. The Companion Website includes seven ethics case studies and experts' responses to them. Students are encouraged to formulate their own responses and compare them to those of the experts. A Professional Codes of Ethics is also featured. NEW VideoWorkshop on Marriage and Family Therapy includes a Student Learning Guide along with 85 minutes (20 clips) of course specific video footage is included on a CD-ROM. Available free when packaged with Kilpatrick.
