Child and Family Assessment: Clinical Guidelines for Practitioners

Child and Family Assessment: Clinical Guidelines for Practitioners (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Child and Family Assessment provides a practical, thoughtful and systematic guide to the theory and practice of family assessment. It combines a clear summary of current knowledge with practical, detailed and adaptable procedures for practitioners to use, such as a script for a family interview. Not only does it contain clear and specific guidance for practice, but the materials are discussed within a broad theoretical context. Written from an eclectic point of view in a clear and precise style using common sense terms, it is an essential summary of key concepts and methods for assessment. The book is written in three sections: on theory, practice and issues. Section one traces the development of important theoretical ideas which are relevant to assessment with children and families. Section two shows what results when these principles are applied in practice, and how information gained from the assessment can be used to determine a therapeutic strategy. Section three considers the relationship between science, assessment and clinical practice, and the book concludes with a set of brief clinical guidelines for child and family assessment which summarize the approach described.

Child and Family Assessment will be an essential guide for practitioners who work with children and their families, and will be an invaluable aid for practitioners and students in all disciplines in the helping professions.
