Summary

This book discusses the task-centered model, the only approach developed within social work that is developed by and totally based on research. This model is based on over 30 experimental studies. Although it was originally developed for Social Workers, this model is also used in other professions. The task centered model is explicitly described, so it is very easy for readers to follow. Brief treatment is also described and the book makes comparison of major brief treatment methods from social work, psychology and psychiatry, helping readers to differentiate methods based on theoretical bases. For social workers or others who may be using brief treatment in their professions.
