Contemporary Issues of Care presents the latest research findings on human behavior and the social environment for social workers practicing at the individual, family, and community levels. This timely book applies the functional-age model on intergenerational therapy (FAM) to examine the interaction between the care recipient's biopsychosocial and spiritual functioning and the capacity of the family/caregiver to adapt. The book's contributors examine the functions of various social systems in caregiving as well as the social worker's role in processing and integrating information to help develop family-centered and community-based interventions.
