Gathering together the top scholars in social work practice, Dulmus and Sowers have created a resource that covers practice skills with individuals, children, and families that is appropriate for students and practitioners. The book covers assessment and interventions of individuals and families using a life span approach. Each chapter covers the theoretical basis for each type of practice as well as the practice implications for social work.
