Part of the SAGE Focus Editions Series


Advancing Family Preservation Practice by E. Susan Morton, R. Kevin Grigsby

Are there effective ways to support a family with problems (for example, neglect, abuse, HIV, terminal illness) in order to prevent it breaking up, and make a positive change possible? This book examines Intensive Family Preservation Services, tracing the history of these services, their success at solving family problems, how families respond to the services and how their effectiveness varies according to the type of problem a family is experiencing. Through an exploration of these issues, the contributors offer their own experience as a basis for tracing the evolution of IFPS and the advances that have been made in the field.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
