Blurb Life can be a struggle for families, and assisting families in difficulty can be challenging for those employed to work with them. This is a guide to this type of work, based on the realities of practice and developments in the field. The book outlines four approaches: solution-focused; narrative; cognitive; and community-building. It emphasizes working with the family as a whole rather than just one troubled family member. Each approach is essentialy optimistic: it assumes change is possible and that the starting point for change is the strengths and capacities of family members. The book is illustrated with case studies drawn from actual practice and includes examples of innovative programmes. It also looks at ways in which workers can incorporate these approaches into their practice to become more effective in their interventions with troubled families.
