Description 

" Praise for the first edition

Finally, a social work practice text that makes a difference! This is the book that you have wished for but could never find. Although similar to texts that cover a range of practice theories and approaches to clinical practice, this book clearly has a social work frame of reference and a social work identity.
--Gayla Rogers, Dean of the Faculty of Social Work, University of Calgary

    This second edition has been updated and revised to include:

  • A new chapter on Relational Theory, and newly-rewritten chapters by new authors on Cognitive-Behavioral Theory, Existential Theory, and Wraparound Services
  • New critique of the Empirically Supported Treatment (EST) movement
  • Updated information on the movement toward eclecticism in counseling and psychotherapy
  • A refined conceptualization of the editors' generalist-eclectic approach

This new edition discusses many of the same issues presented in the first, but also provides a framework for integrating the use of each theory with central social work principles and values, as well as with the artistic elements of practice.
