From the Publisher"The case studies in this text give the students real situations with enough information and context to grapple with decision making and application of the code of ethics and theoretical constructs presented in our courses."
"I will certainly adopt the text .... I tend to use the approach with disguised cases from my own practice, purely hypothetical situations, or even literature. The situations in this manuscript address all levels of practice in addition to fields of practice which greatly expands what I offer based on my own practice experience."
"The case situations are creative and raise multiple issues related to a variety of practice situations. Though I have used a variation of this teaching method, the cases used were made up and provided much less detail. I would like to see more texts that use open-ended case method examples to enhance decision making and critical thinking skills. I am excited to try this some of these case examples and the case method approach in the classroom."
"I would tell a colleague that the decision-making, case method approach to teaching was superior to other case examples that told students what to think/how to think about various situations. I would argue that this method of teaching was much needed in the curriuculum and of its potential value in assisting students to develop good critical and collaborative thinking skills. There is also the creative potential (by assigning individual cases) to use these cases to develop skills in the effective use of supervision. I would argue that this valuable text could and should be used as a supplement in more than one course in the social work curriculum."
