The Partnership Model in Human Services: Sociological Foundations and Practices (Clinical Sociology) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book provides students and practitioners with a theoretical and methodological foundation for implementing client- and family-centered `partnership' approaches in human services. Unlike other texts in the field, the author integrates the principles and practices of sociology with applied work in the helping professions and shows how key sociological concepts can be used to explain the nature of clients' perspectives and expand client opportunities.

Book News Annotation:

This volume developed out of a course taught by Darling (sociology, Indiana U. of Pennsylvania) titled Clinical Sociological Theory. He attempts to apply sociological theory and methods to the entire spectrum of human service work. After exploring the background and theory of the material, he looks at how clients' world views are shaped by their locations in society in relation to gender, social class, race, and ethnicity. He also looks at methods for identifying clients' resources, concerns, and priorities. Finally, he looks at microlevel interventions with individuals and families and mesolevel interventions that attempt to change service systems.
