Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Walsh's concise, comprehensive text covers eleven major clinical practice theories that social workers commonly use in their assessment, planning, and intervention tasks with individuals, families, and groups. The book offers you a broad view of the field of practice, while still providing a close-up view of each theory discussed.
