Social Work with Families

Content and Process

Robert Constable and Daniel Lee

  • Employs a transcultural perspective that assumes cultural diversity as a constant reality of current family practice and provides a bridge for working with couples and families in diverse cultures
  • Presents case studies of situations which involve the reader and make the content both teachable and, at the same time, open to different interpretations of the complexity of family life
  • Develops theory and practice for work with families in different fields of practice such as school social work, health care, mental health, the judicial system, child welfare and more

New to this Edition:

  • Relects recent clinical trial research on couples' and family interventions
  • Incorporates family life education, broadening the focus into newly developing areas with greater potential for sustainable practice
