First published in 1974, Social Work Treatment remains the most popular and trusted compendium of theories available to social work students and practitioners. It explores the full range of theoretical approaches that drive social work treatment and knowledge development, from psychoanalysis to crisis intervention. A treasure trove of practice knowledge, the text 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 readers 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.

Francis J. Turner, DSW, MSW, LDD, is Professor Emeritus, School of Social work, Wilfrid Laurier University and Senior Scholar, York University.
In the fifth edition of this seminal text, Francis Turner has once again gathered information useful for the educator, student, and practitioner alike. Each of the expertly written thirty-eight chapters provides a rich resource filled with theory-based explanations, and a framework for the subsequent concepts and strategies that lead to intervention success. In each of the approaches to practice, one unified message is heard throughout the chapter, clearly calling for an open and flexible approach to practice that takes into account all aspects of the person's internal and external environment. Solving problem behaviors is never simple and providing an interlocking framework that allows for choice in selecting theoretical perspectives opens the door to consistent, comprehensive, efficient, and effective service delivery. Sophia F. Dziegielewski, PhD, Professor, School of Social Work, University of Cincinnati This much-needed update to Turner's classic and comprehensive text on social work treatment theories includes nine new theories that have become influential in social work practice since the fourth edition published in 1996. It is essential that experienced practitioners as well as those new to the field be conversant with the theories and approaches that are shaping social work practice today. Turner's new edition, authored by recognized scholars and experienced clinicians, brings together all of the relevant social work treatment theories in today's postmodern world, making it easy for readers to become informed and to begin applying the theories in their practice.
