From our regular book review column.
How to serve the multicrisis poor? Working With Families of
the Poor, Second Edition, presents a multisystem approach in
which one or more agencies interact with the families to address
problems, including psychiatric disorders (especially substance
abuse). The authors provide brilliant descriptions of how families
as systems attempt to survive, how government agencies as
systems attempt to help, and how the 2 or more systems interact.
We write “two or more,” because more than one family may be
involved, and more than one agency often is needed.
