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.
