"This is simply the best book on the market on generalist practice (and believe me, I've looked at most of the others). The book has rich interesting vignettes, grids, forms and Highlight sections. I also appreciate the websites and InfoTrac information and direct the students to utilize it very frequently..."
"The book by Kirst-Ashman/Hull, UNDERSTANDING GENERALIST PRACTICE, has been a valuable assistance in the teaching of generalist practice skills, and the new edition continues to improve...The emphasis on critical thinking skills is SO important along with the curriculum development in line with CSWE's guidelines. The author is clearly a practicing social worker who draws from live, current experience in providing examples and a sound practice base in presenting strategy. Hats off to Kirst-Ashman/Hull for enhancing and providing a good text in a field where 'the rubber meets the road.' Throughout, the focus is practical, pointed, and easily applied by the beginner."
