Empowerment Practice with Families in Distress (Empowering the Powerless: A Social Work Series) by Judith Bula Wise

For more than 150 years, empowering practices have been used by social workers in their work with families, but the techniques of today differ significantly from those of the pioneers or even from those of a few years ago. Todays practitioners recognize that empowering others is impossible; social workers can, however, assist others as they empower themselves. This book integrates time-honored approaches with todays more modest goals, mindful of what empowerment can and cannot do. Synthesizing several theoretical supports mdash;the strengths perspective, system theory, theories of family well-being, and theories of coping mdash;the author responds to the question What works? with todays families in need. Practice illustrations are provided throughout to bring concepts to life and, more important, to present families describing their own experiences with achieving empowerment.
