This Desk Reference is a positively remarkable compendium and sourcebook for social work practitioners and academics. It is so comprehensive and so well organized that everything you would ever wanted to know about social work ethics and practice is at your fingertips. Each of the 146 chapters is assessable and uniformly well written, all by recognized scholars and practitioners in the field. The book closes with a chapter brimming with ideas for future social work research, providing a wonderful platter of research directions for the next generation. The Editors and their Board deserve our gratitude for exemplary work. I highly recommend this extraordinary book to everyone in the social work profession.

In Social Workers' Desk Reference, Drs. Albert Roberts and Gilbert Greene have compiled and edited the most exemplary and practical collection of chapters on the most up-to-date information on social work practice I have ever seen. This extraordinary group of leading clinical social work scholars and practitioners provides the reader with a remarkable and comprehensive volume of timely practice knowledge. The chapters provide imperative and in-depth practice knowledge in a short and accessible format. The easy-to-read chapters provide concise step-by-step guidelines for assessment, treatment goals, treatment plans, intervention, case management, and evaluation. Topics include but are not limited to: the current context of social work practice, values and ethics, treatment approaches, assessment, treatment planning with specfific groups, case management guidelines, community practices, vulnerable populations, psychopharmacology, practice evaluation, and the future of social work practice. No other book comes close to providing as much useful information in one place as the Social Workers' Desk Reference. This book will help all social work practitioners as well as those in related professions to successfully and competently do their jobs in today's managed care environment. In short time, this sourcebook will become THE BOOK that never leaves your desk.
