Tracey McGruthers is an Instructor of Interpersonal and Group Skills courses in the Police Foundations Program at Georgian College.Review:
The skills practice boxes are an excellent idea. They get the students actively learning and interacting with the textual materials...The writing style is warm and engaging. One gets the impression that the author cares about learners and their ability to grasp the ideas.
Tom Allen, Criminology Department, Kwantlen University College
I like the workbook format with the exercises at the end. The boxed features are great, especially the Law and Justice Perspectives.
Dana Lennox, Police & Public Safety Program, Algonquin College
The end-of-chapter exercises as add a strong applied component to the text. I also think the workbook format is a good idea. My experience is that students generally prefer this approach and enjoy completing the practice boxes and exercises on their own or, during devoted class time. It allows the student to fully grasp the material and apply it at their own pace. I enjoy the clarity and detail that the author has chosen - this is a strength of the text. The writing style is appropriate as the concepts presented are clearly presented and then supplemented with real examples that students will have typically heard in the media.
