Review quote

"The authors seek to develop a collaborative process among theoreticians, researchers and practitioners committed to the provision of effective children's mental health services that recognizes and draws on the knowledge and experience of each. Since this book was published in 2002, each of the models presented has been further developed and researched, sometimes raising questions about the model's original conceptualization, application or demonstrated effectiveness."--Research on Social Work Practiceshow more
