What Reviewers Are Saying

“[Social Work Practice] expands the dominant theories (systems and ecological) and blends them

with the strengths perspective. This is new content for my students, and offers them a first exposure

to understanding how theories can be blended to provide a more comprehensive accounting of

the experiences of individuals, families, groups, and communities. These approaches are clearly

presented in the book and my students are able to easily understand and utilize these approaches

as they are presented.”

–John D. Matthews, Virginia Commonwealth University

 

“The questions at the ends of the chapters are wonderful–they are thought-provoking and really

helpful in assisting with critical thinking and integrating the material ... I also really appreciate

the problem solving and ecosystems strengths approach as the processes identified for facilitating

change–they are positive and comprehensive and practical!”

–Anne Kearney Kelso, Syracuse University

 

“This text does the best job I have seen with the strengths and ecosystems approach to practice ...

[This is] the kind of book a student will keep for guidance both in field practicum and in practice

... I would certainly adopt this text ... It has exce llent schemas for analysis of the individual, the

group, and the community as well as an example of a social history that will set up the rest of the

helping process.”

–Peggy Pittman-Munke, Murray State University
