In his energetic first chapters, Maguire discusses generalist, systemic, and advanced practices. He is masterful at describing a myriad of treatment modalities. He dedicates a chapter to each of the following: systems interventions with individuals, systems interventions with families, case management, group interventions, psychodynamic interventions, behavioral interventions, cognitive interventions, and brief interventions, as well as a final chapter on documentation, assessments, and treatment plans. For each perspective, Maguire provides a history of the relevant theory and describes pertinent theoretical frameworks and practice techniques. All this information is summarized and illustrated with realistic and clear case examples.
