Synopsis

Empowering Vulnerable Populations Cognitive-Behavioral Interventions by Mary Keegan (Associate Professor, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) Eamon

Empowering Vulnerable Populations is the first source book for cognitive-behavioral interventions used with vulnerable populations. The book presents and evaluates a broad range of CB interventions that assist vulnerable populations in attaining empowerment-related goals. The author demonstrates the consistency of CB applications with an empowerment perspective, the importance of CB intervention methods, and the need for continued research on how these methods can assist vulnerable groups in attaining empowerment outcomes.

Reviews

Very well researched and very relevant to social work practice . . . The overview of cognitive-behavioral interventions is concise, clear, and very easy to understand. -Nancy Fitzsimons, Minnesota State University, Mankato
