This book integrates time-honored approaches to empowerment practice with today's more modest goals, mindful of what empowerment can and cannot do. Synthesizing several theoretical supports — the strengths perspective, system theory, theories of family well-being, and theories of coping — the author responds to the question "What works?" with today's families in need. Practice illustrations are provided throughout.
