Offering an alternative to the mental health/family dysfunction model in the public child welfare field, Samantrai (Smith College School for Social Work) presents a model which integrates behavior theories with assessment from the perspective of goodness-of- fit between the child's needs and parents' ability to meet those needs. Assessment and intervention focus on making different kinds of decisions at different points in the process. Competency areas identified by the California Social Work Education Center are addressed, including ethnic-sensitive and multicultural practice. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
