About the Author:

Dr. Forte is an Associate Professor at Salisbury University in the social work department. He has received teaching awards including the President's Award for Outstanding Teaching, Christopher Newport University, 1996 and the Outstanding Virginia Social Work Educator Award in 1994. His areas of interest include social and behavioral theories, social group work, policy advocacy, interactionist social work, public problems, and technology for teaching. He also leads a national group of educators who have been studying the Human Behavior in the Social Environment course and innovative ways to organize and to teach this content.

Review:

"I think Models, Metaphors, and Maps (brings the theories) alive and does an excellent job of having an active and rich conversation with the reader. I think students will enjoy this book and because the theories are operationalized, this will help students visualize how to use theories."

"Extremely well presented, very logical and organized, easy to read, appealing for students, provides handles for the understanding and application of theory. Sufficient detail without becoming burdensome. Makes theory come alive."
