Edition/Copyright:2ND 03 Cover: Hardback Publisher:Guilford Press Year Published: 2003 International: No
"Written by a master clinician and teacher with decades of experience, this volume addresses the challenges of working with children and families that are faced daily by contemporary practitioners, and carefully articulates some of the best approaches to assessment and intervention. Webb sensitively integrates the many facets of practice with children--the child, family, community, school, public and private service delivery systems, and the public policy context. She ably takes the reader through the different ways clinicians can help children and into a variety of circumstances in which children are seen in our ever-changing, sometimes perilous world. This lucidly written second edition is sure to remain a centerpiece of any graduate course on practice with children and a tried-and-true companion for clinicians of all levels."
--Luis H. Zayas, PhD, George Warren Brown School of Social Work, Washington University in St. Louis
"I strongly recommend this text. The volume offers practitioners and social work educators an invaluable resource of methods and skills for helping children with challenging life conditions and perilous life situations. With the fully updated second edition, readers can be sure they have the latest information on key topics. This is an excellent and much needed contribution to the contemporary practice literature."
--Alex Gitterman, MSW, EdD
"Nancy Boyd Webb has done an outstanding job of assembling an introductory textbook for undergraduate and graduate students of social work interested in clinical intervention with young children-especially young children....The volume is very well organized, and the writing is quite accessible."
--Science Books & Films (on the first edition)
