This expanded third edition of a popular textbook provides a completely revised and updated overview of the theories, models, and therapies that informdirect social work practice. The text is grounded in generalist social work principles and values and promotes a problem-solving model of social workpractice as a framework for the eclectic use of theory, as well as for integrating the artistic, reflective elements of practice. It provides in-depth coverage of select psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, critical, and postmodern theories.

The third edition features a new section on Critical Theories, where a new chapter on Empowerment Theory is included with a completely revised chapter onFeminist Theory. A new chapter on Strengths-based Social Work has been added to the section on meta-theories for social work practice. Other new chaptersinclude Emotion-focused Therapy and Collaborative Therapy. These revisions are based on suggestions from an extensive survey of professors.

New to the Third Edition:
• A new section on critical theories
• New chapters on strengths-based social work, emotion-focused therapy, empowerment theory, and collaborative therapy
• Updated research on the debate about the importance of theory/technique versus common (e.g., relationship) factors, and on the critique of the empirically supported treatment movement
• Resources for instructors, including an Instructor's Manual and PowerPoint slides
