Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In COUNSELING IN CHALLENGING CONTEXTS, International Edition, Michael Ungar introduces the new social ecological model designed to integrate the best of what we know about individual and family counseling and case management with practical applications of strengths-based interventions in clinical, community and institutional settings. Two concepts of Navigation and Negotiation organize the theory and its application to counseling practice in office-based and community settings. A DVD demonstrating practice accompanies the text.
