Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[A] comprehensive text on the practice of social work as well as an overivew of the history of the profession. The text integrates experiential exercises throughout the text to assimilate the theory in a practical manner for the student for maximum learning."

"…A wonderful resource for introductory social work students. The emphasis on building skills and practical knowledge will be appreciated by students and faculty. It is both broad and deep in coverage of information most necessary to social workers. Strengths include writing style, exercises, breadth of topics covered, the author has an obvious enthusiasm for social work as well as a solid understanding of social work challenges, opportunities, and rewards."

"The content is superior to other texts that I have reviewed for adoption. I like the pace at which the material is presented. I especially like the vignettes and exercises. They will be very helpful in teaching practice. They are thoughtfully presented and address many of the difficult issues students will encounter in the field. Having had an exercise to inspire thought about the issues will enhance their ability to make a difference in the lives of their clients."
