Working with Families: Strengths-Based Approaches is written with both the student of social and community work and the practising social and community worker in mind. All aspects of social and community work are covered in this book that builds on and substantially extends the authors' earlier work Supporting Families (1999).
This edition continues a strong emphasis upon context, the cornerstone of effective social and community work practice. It covers the key areas of reflective practice, policy, management and leadership, approaches to support, and diversity. Each chapter contains questions that can be used as teaching aids or reflection prompters in practice.
The book includes a new chapter which provides a detailed examination of current strengths-based thinking internationally.
