"The biggest challenge in teaching Introduction to Social Work is finding the time to teach all of the areas necessary for students to make a well-informed decision regarding a Social Work major. Additionally, it has been very difficult to find one solid text that covers the material clearly and comprehensively. I think you have found the text! ...This book covers all the necessary concepts with excellent diagrams/charts/tables to help students fully understand them. The vignettes and narratives infuse ethics and diversity and prompt students to engage in critical thinking....Will this text be available for Fall 2002?"
