Environmental Modification in Clinical Social Work: A Self-psychological Perspective
Preview not available

Abstract

In this article, environmental modification within the psychosocial tradition of clinical social work is reexamined. Selected constructs from Heinz Kohut's self psychology, in particular his ideas regarding the significance of "self-selfobject" experiences for development and functioning, are set forth and applied to person-environment transactions. Implications are discussed for clinical social work with preadolescent and adolescent children and their families, couples, and chronically disabled unattached adults.
