Twelve commonly-used theories are thoroughly explained, with discussion of the strengths and limitations of each, and applied to real work with individuals, groups, families, communities, and organizations. Includes case studies and first-person contributions from practicing social workers to illustrate the real-world scenarios in which different concepts apply"--
