The NEW EDITION of this primary text for advanced clinical practice courses at the core of the MSW curriculum teaches students how to integrate theory and practice on multiple levels.

Highlights of the New Edition:

  • Chapters 6-12 present clinical illustrations through the lenses of specific theoretical models, beginning with a detailed discussion of a theory and moving to assessment and treatment within that conceptual framework. Dialogue illustrates how theory guides practice.
  • Models of intervention are covered in seven chapters (Chapters 7-13). Each chapter presents a clinical illustration of an individual, family, or group and examines them using a specific theoretical model.
