Strengthening Families: From "Deficit" to "Empowerment."
Dean, Christiann
Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Problems, v2 n4 p8-11 Win 1994
Addresses shift from deficit to empowerment model in work with families. Describes shift in human services "assistance" model from "doing to" to "doing with," from "power over" to "power with," and from "teaching the client" to "collaborative learning." Contends that new model will replace fragmented, deficit-oriented crisis intervention with comprehensive family development efforts. (NB)
