Restructuring their text to focus on evidence-based approaches and adding case studies for this edition, the authors write on behalf of social work practitioners about assessing, intervening in and treating a variety of family issues. After they describe the theoretical framework and general approaches, they cover evidence- based treatment of families headed by a single parent, those with aging members, those in poverty or experiencing income loss, those with members with persistent mental disorders or who are chronically ill, and those featuring child abuse and other family violence, substance abuse, and separation and divorce. They close with a description of treatment for the reconstituted family. All chapters include discussion questions and references. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
