Intensive Family Preservation in Human Services
A new book, Reaching High-Risk Families: Intensive Family Preservation in Human Services, focuses on the Homebuilders model, which is an intensive, in-home intervention that provides families with children at risk of out-of-home placement with counseling, life skills education, and other tools geared toward family preservation.
This 10-chapter book, available in both electronic and hardcopy formats, focuses on the social work discipline and the implications for professional social work education and family-centered curricula in areas such as social policy; direct practice; program design, management, and implementation; and practice research, theory, and prevention.
Chapters include "The Implications of Family Preservation as Placement Prevention," "Theories Guiding Home-Based Intensive Family Preservation," "Designing and Managing Family Preservation Services," and more.
