Contemporary Issues of Care presents the latest research findings on human behavior and the social environment for social workers practicing at the individual, family, and community levels. This timely book applies the functional-age model on intergenerational therapy (FAM) to examine the interaction between the care recipient's biopsychosocial and spiritual functioning and the capacity of the family/caregiver to adapt. The book's contributors examine the functions of various social systems in caregiving as well as the social worker's role in processing and integrating information to help develop family-centered and community-based interventions.

Contemporary Issues of Care focuses on caregiving situations across the life span, using research findings to shape social work curriculum and to improve social work practice and services. With the family still the primary caregiving institution in the United States, the book examines the mutual interdependence among family members and the dynamic development of family structure and organization. An exemplary textbook for students in social work, the book also includes a workbook and CD.
