What Your Colleagues Are Saying:

 

“Students love [this text] because it covers so much and they feel they have some framework on which to build their clinical skills.” — Mary Hart, University of Wyoming

 

“The authors comprehensively cover the NASW Code of Ethics. The specific information included is quite appropriate in order for social work practitioners to gain a solid understanding of practice expectations related to values and ethics.” — Vanessa Hunn, University of Kentucky, Lexington

 

“I think the ‘Voices from the Field’ sections do a particularly good job of showing the diversity not only of social workers themselves, but also the variety of types of jobs that they perform.” — Julie Emmer, University of Central Florida

Review:

  “This text is clearly ahead of Hepworth in terms of diversity, on the HIPPA information, and on NASW Ethics... there is much more emphasis on empowerment and the strengths perspective.” —Larry Livingston, University of Illinois-Springfield

“The writing is engaging...the addition of 2-color and other graphics enhance the readability, reader engagement, and user-friendliness.” —Chrystal C. Ramirez Barranti, PhD, California State University, Sacramento

“Chapters are well-written, stimulating and full of content. They are written with down-to-earth, realistic examples to capture student interests. With regards to the CWSE Standards, the text meets or exceeds the standards. Many of the chapters directly discuss the standards tell students why they are important and how the text tries to meet those standards...Clearly written...comprehensive...interesting, illustrative examples... Emphasis on strengths perspective...Strong consideration of diversity...Well-organized.” —Nancy Udolph, Ashland University

“Coverage of diversity and diverse client populations is introduced through case examples.” —Susan Mittendorf, Ph.D., Louisiana State University

"Writing style and voice are compatible. This is a very readable text. Having 14 chapters is great." —Robert M. Ortega, University of Michigan

“The textbook is a very difficult genre to work in, and the authors did well to present a lot of material and keep it as interesting as possible...Strengths include the overt inclusion of major clinical theories and readable, interesting perspectives presented in enough detail to be useful. Key social work material is presented well and without preaching or unnecessarily denigrating other perspectives some texts fall into.” —Daniel Coleman, Portland State University
