About this book

This book provides students and practitioners with a theoretical and methodological foundation for implementing client- and family-centered `partnership' approaches in human services. Unlike other texts in the field, the author integrates the principles and practices of sociology with applied work in the helping professions and shows how key sociological concepts can be used to explain the nature of clients' perspectives and expand client opportunities.

Reviews

`This volume represents a synthesis of human service practice and the academic field of sociology. The primary audience for this book is upper-level undergraduate sociology students, but the material has been used in a graduate course on sociological practice. Professionals practicing in the human service field, especially those without backgrounds in sociology who are trying to align their practices with the new client- and family-centered partnership models may find this book useful.'
Administration and Policy in Mental Health, January 2001
