Description

The last two decades in social work have seen tremendous strides in field research, from the development of improved research designs to more accurate methods of problem measurement and outcome analysis. Drawing upon these significant advances, this two-volume handbook brings together empirically validated interventions for many of the psychosocial problems most frequently encountered by social workers in their daily practice.
