Greene's groundbreaking book-and-CD-ROM package effectively synthesizes ideas from a number of human behavior and practice theories that have been used in combination with risk and resilience theory, such as solution-focused therapy and other strength-based approaches. To ensure consistent content, each chapter encompasses mandated practice requirements, such as engaging clients in an appropriate working relationship; identifying issues, problems, needs, resources, and assets; collecting and assessing information; and planning for service delivery. Chapters specifically focus on strengths, capacities, and resources of a client system in relation to the environment to identify issues, problems, needs, resources, and assets. Students learn to apply the knowledge and skills of generalist social work practice from a timely risk and resilience perspective. Intervention with systems of all sizes is illustrated through the book's content, and organized chronologically around lifespan issues. Conceptually linked to social work purposes and learning objectives, this text, with its integrated CD-ROM and website, represents an innovative and timely new model for practice.
