Summary

Therapeutic Intervention with Poor, Unorganized Families: From Distress to Hope offers you integrated theories, practice, and research to provide you with the tools to be more effective when dealing with families in crisis.

Therapeutic Intervention with Poor, Unorganized Families explores the decline of families into extreme distress and helps you to determine the best intervention for that particular family, as no one single method can be prescribed for all families. Therapists as well as clients favor the joint-goal intervention you will discover through this book, which is carried out mostly in the family home where the therapist can delegate authority as a means of strengthening and preserving the family. Through Therapeutic Intervention with Poor, Unorganized Families, you will receive a plethora of ideas which consist of multiple intervention techniques and alternatives for intervention, including:

  • learning to organize institutions in the community to participate in getting families in extreme distress out of their long and perpetual predicament
  • teaching you how cooperation between various government organizations, public and private, can be solicited for the welfare of these families
  • offering you an anthro-psycho-social model of intervention that you will find effective in your own practice
  • examining case studies so you can see how the new model works in real-life settings

    Therapeutic Intervention with Poor, Unorganized Families is unique because not only does it offer you help with supervision and training aspects, but because it also ends with a qualitative and quantitative research evaluation of this new model. Comprehensive and thorough, this book deals with the difficulties that may arise to interfere with the effectiveness of the intervention so you can learn from it and prevent further crisis. Therapeutic Intervention with Poor, Unorganized Families is a must for anyone working with families in crisis.
