New Approaches to Family Practice
Confronting Economic Stress



© 1996 | 279 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
To what extent do economic stresses - such as dual-earner parents, unemployment/underemployment and poverty in the family - affect a social worker's assessment of the families in their care?

Families, Work, and Poverty applies a wealth of current research driven by the family systems theoretical framework to social work practice with families in three specific areas: employed-work and family- work; unemployment; and poverty. The book presents chapters on the theory and research in these three target areas, each followed by a chapter on applications and tools for direct practice in that area. Each applications chapter includes a case study, assessment tools, multilevel interventions and evaluations, and strategies for social change.
