Editorial Reviews

John F. Longres

This has always been my text of choice and this new edition solidifies my belief that it is by far the best and most thorough social work oriented interviewing text available.... I am especially impressed by the extended information on listening, non-verbal communication, transitions, the use of interpreters, interpreting the deaf, and interviewing involuntary clients.

Ronald H. Rooney

Adds practical, research based guidelines for interviewing involuntary adults and sexually abused children useful to both the student and the graduate practitioner.

The finest, most comprehensive text on the subject. The 4th edition, thoroughly updated and expanded, uses a phase approach to the interview process which is unmatched by any current text.
