With contributions from leading professionals and researchers, it explores the full range of theoretical approaches that drive social work treatment and knowledge development, from psychoanalysis to crisis intervention. The style and content of chapters are practice-oriented, concentrate on the use of systems in a practical context, and, together with detailed descriptions of each theoretical system, explore their real-world implementation. This treasure trove of practice knowledge equips professionals with a broad array of theoretical approaches, each of which shine a spotlight on a different aspect of the human condition. Emphasizing the importance of a broad-based theoretical approach to practice, it helps professionals avoid the pitfalls of becoming overly identified with a narrow focus that limits their understanding of clients and their contexts. This sweeping overview of the field untangles the increasingly complex problems, ideologies, and value sets that define contemporary social work practice. The result is an essential A-to-Z reference that charts the full range of theoretical approaches available to social workers regardless of their setting or specialty"--Provided by publisher.
