Review:

"There is simply no better book for the purpose of giving students a clear understanding, in a concise format, of how to conceptualize and then work with a client. Further, this is the best book I've seen for giving students opportunities to practice specific skills."

"The exercises offered are "first rate" in aiding helpers in their skill development. The text is thorough in its discussion of the topics the author has chosen to address. The author often takes a more conversational tone [which] seems to lead to a more ready understanding of the material presented."

"[This text is] excellent in conceptualizing the process [and] sequencing activities. The questions suggested for each stage are very good. The updated information about issues in current practice and health coverage are also excellent."
