What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"This is an important book for anyone interested in providing carefor our recent veterans and their loved ones. It provides asophisticated, thoughtful orientation for non- military clinicians.The discussion of Military Cultural and Diversity is especiallycomprehensive and brings together concepts that clinicians need tounderstand if they are to provide the best possible treatment forour military and their families. I highly recommend it!"
Judith Broder, M.D., Founder/Director The SoldiersProject

"This text is a vital work for social work students as well aspractitioners who are or plan to be engaged with veterans and theirfamilies. The chapters' authors represent a "who's who" of leadingresearchers and practitioners as they delve into "the wide range ofchallenges, strengths, and interventions that social works need tolearn about...." The text is also built around the CSWE's 2008Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards while reflectingan evidence-based approach to practice. All social workers shouldbecome familiar with this important work. Rubin, Weiss, and Collcall us to stand firmly by our professional and civicresponsibilities to these warriors and their families. To dootherwise would be the social work profession's shame."

Service members are a uniquepopulation because of their experience in war and the dramaticimpact that can have on them and their families. An understandingof this culture is essential in order to provide them the servicesthey need to reintegrate successfully."
