Poulin (Widener U.) and collaborators present an approach to social work practice that is generalist because the practitioner works at different client system levels (individual, family, group, organization, and community) and is "strengths-based" because it focuses on clients abilities rather than being focused on perceived deficits and pathological problems. After presenting the model, with its theoretical and practical principles, chapters describe assessment tools and the different phases of interventions. Later chapters look at generalist practice with special populations. This is a revised edition second edition of a work originally titled Collaborative Social Work.
