 Professor Forte Publishes First Book

**Theoreticians associated with different schools of thought have been

participating in spirited exchanges about the nature of membership in

society for more than a century. Theory users cannot afford disciplinary

chauvinism but must borrow from many of these traditions. “Theories

for Practice” crosses disciplinary boundaries and draws from

psychology, sociology, economics, biology, the cognitive sciences and

other disciplines as they contribute to the practical understanding of

social membership processes. It provides social workers, applied

sociologists, and other human service professionals with practical tools

for developing fluency in many theoretical languages.”
