"I would describe this (text) as being very user friendly. I believe it will appeal to students because it provides clearly useful information that will enable them apply its content to the development of professional social work practice skills."
"I've not seen one (book) cover the topic so clearly and with clear social work values and expectations." "The strengths of this text are its organization; its clarity and thoroughness regarding the specific skills that all social workers must be trained in and should aspire to; its numerous practice exercises; its current literature base; its attention to ethics, including legal definitions/issues; its continued emphasis on professional use of self issues and their impact on social work practice; and the deep level of skill and practice wisdom that the author obviously possesses and infuses throughout the text."
