This book will assist social workers in meeting this critical goal.

This book helps social workers and mental health practitioners gain a broader understanding of each child's unique needs when in the midst of family crisis. It presents the new research tools and techniques with which professionals might better address the developmental needs, synchronies, and trajectories of a given child.
