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.

"I have required this book for many years in child welfare related courses. I assign all students to a small reading group and assign a number of the questions at the end of each chapter for them to discuss. I interact with the small groups, pushing them to think more or offering alternative perspectives. Having been in the field for years before teaching, I find the experiences shared realistic. Students always note this assignment as a favorite." --Bettyanne Hutton, Florida Atlantic University
"It is an easy read and the questions at the end of each chapter should generate focused class discussions. I spent 22 years as a professional in Human Services and could relate many of my experiences to the content in this book." --Francis LaChappelle, Jamestown Community College
"This text has the potential to help students understand the reality of being a child welfare worker. It is well written and will be eye-opening to my students." --Lisa Schelbe, Florida State University
