Summary Annotation "Professional social work in the field of social welfare aims mainly at preventing or solving social problems, sometimes at mitigating their consequences. It is a question of achieving desired changes or preventing undesired ones. Changes are brought about through various forms of intervention, directed towards individuals, groups or local communities. This book is about the concepts of change and intervention. It also describes different kinds of social intervention. The book is part of the European Master Programme European Perspectives on Social Inclusion, developed within the Socrates Programme. The book is intended for professionals in a broad range of the welfare field, as well as for students in related educational programmes and everyone with an interest in social change and social intervention."
Annotation Conceived as one-sixth of the core curricular material for a master's program titled "European Perspectives on Social Inclusion" and developed by seven European universities, this course module is devoted to introducing approaches to intervention that aim at bringing about changes in the social situation of individuals, groups, and organizations. The authors (from Karlstad U. in Sweden and Eötvös Lorand U. of Sciences in Hungary) discuss the theories behind interventions from individual counseling to community work, along with the theories historical and cultural development. They stress the importance of a multi- cultural approach. Annotation 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
