About this title:
Walsh's text provides MSW course instructors and students with a single volume that incorporates concise, comprehensive coverage of eleven major clinical practice theories that social workers commonly use in their assessment, planning, and intervention tasks with individuals, families, and groups. The book's scope encompasses a broad view of the practice field, yet still allows students to look closely at each theory discussed.
