Both as services and as sciences, social work and psychology rest on a multi-dimensional theory base that is rich and varied. Here, Christopher Hudson offers a forward thinking, integrative, and authoritative look at the theoretical underpinnings of the human services that will provide readers with a fresh perspective on their professional life and practice.

This is a necessary book for practitioners as well as for other advanced students of human behavior who seeks a greater understanding of the evolution and foundation of their craft.
