This book aims to rethink systemic intervention to enhance its relevance for supporting social change in the 21st century. It offers a new systems philosophy and methodology, focusing upon the fundamental importance of exploring value and boundary judgements as part of the intervention process. It includes four detailed examples of the practice of systemic intervention.
"[...]I would strongly recommend this impressive, coherent, and principled book. It could broaden the community psychologists' horizons and suggest some solutions to the kinds of dilemmas and problems that can bog us down so much."
