This book provides early intervention service providers with strategies for working with families at highest risk. It is one of the few books to focus on the treatment of families at psychosocial risk, outlining an integrative approach to early intervention, and providing both a theoretical and a very practical approach to intervention with the most at-risk families. Each chapter includes a definition of the topic being discussed, key research results on the topic as it relates to early intervention and multi-risk families, the topic's implications for child development, and practical strategies for parents.
