Summary

The best selling social work assessment book has been made even better. Franklin and Jordan combine two approaches - qualitative and quantitative - that are often considered at odds. The authors' unique synthesis creates a new approach that encourages the use of multiple methods in formulating client assessments.

Drawing on critiques of experienced users, the authors have reorganized parts of the book, added new contributions from specialists, and included a new chapter on multicultural assessment. The chapter on multistressed families now includes gay and lesbian families, mistreated children and people with health related issues. Chapters 6 and 7 now end with a section on processing the movement from assessment to intervention. The link between assessment and practice has been made clearer throughout the book and important documentation formerly in appendices have been placed in the text.

The second edition includes extensive references, sample forms, samples of integrative skills assessments, and examples of standardized measures. Reader friendly features such as chapter introductions, chapter conclusions, and review questions have been added.
