We teach our students the theory and skills to prepare them for social work practice; now with From the Eye of the Storm , we can give them a glimpse of what the life of a social worker is actually like. Reading more like a novel than a textbook, From the Eye of the Storm's first-person account invites the students into the life of a typical child welfare worker who has gone on to teach and write in the field. References are also made to practices of the past and present so that the student can see how the system has changed. This text is a must for anyone interested in the field of children's services.
