"Writing and organizing such a broad subject matter as social work practice is a grand challenge to say the least. The authors of this text do an exceptional job in tackling this challenge. I think the writing is engaging and the addition of 2-color and other graphics, text boxes, etc. enhances the readability, reader engagement, and user-friendliness of this thorough text." Chrystal C. Ramirez Barrant, California State University, Sacramento"You are clearly ahead in providing information on working with diversity, on the HIPPA info, and on NASW Ethics and there is much more emphasis on empowerment and the strengths perspective." Larry Livingston, University of Illinois, Springfield"I find the chapters to be well-written, stimulating and full of content. They are written in a way that will catch the interest of students and use down-to-earth, realistic examples which will also interest students." Nancy Udolph, Ashland University"Coverage of diversity and diverse client populations is introduced through case examples. It is well-organized and the writing is clear and interesting. Current research is integrated." Susan Mittendorf, Louisiana State University"The writing and organization are excellent throughout!"
