From the Publisher
"[This] is a very strong and comprehensive text for students who are practicing in the field of aging at both undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as for students in the foundation year of a graduate program…I am eager to tell my colleagues who teach foundation-level micro and macro practice that this text illustrates many important concepts in social work, with rich case studies. The text is even appropriate for faculty to use who have little or no background or experience in aging…It is written in a style that is comprehensive yet largely easy to read."
"[This] is a much needed text and I think will be welcomed by gerontological educators and practitioners at all levels…I'd describe the text as a needed tool for advocates and a model for other disciplines. It is 'accessible' from a pedagogical standpoint while presenting in one volume a description of service systems, conflict theories, and advocacy models."
"In summary I learned about the theoretical foundations, types, techniques, and research and documentation roles of elder advocates. Needless to say, I congratulate the authors for combining their years of dedication, passion, and experiences to create this text for elder advocacy. Well over due!"
"The very practical approach offered in this book will be both very appealing and very educational...I have been looking for a very practical book like this to add to my reading list in my course." "I would describe this book as basically a practical book assessing needs of elders and planning strategies to deal with those needs. It is appropriate for both lower and upper division undergraduates who are interested in careers in services to older adults, but also for masters level students who are already working with older adults and who want to increase their skill levels."
