Article Abstract

From our regular book review column.

How to serve the multicrisis poor? Working With Families ofthe Poor, Second Edition, presents a multisystem approach inwhich one or more agencies interact with the families to addressproblems, including psychiatric disorders (especially substanceabuse). The authors provide brilliant descriptions of how familiesas systems attempt to survive, how government agencies assystems attempt to help, and how the 2 or more systems interact.We write "two or more," because more than one family may beinvolved, and more than one agency often is needed.
