"This book just keeps getting better with each edition. It is clear and concise. Complex ideas are presented clearly, but not oversimplified. There are plenty of concrete examples to illustrate major points and integrate related concepts. The cases are the highlight of the book. They are rich and varied, they cover a wide variety of human needs and human service roles, and they illustrate many of the important concepts. I also appreciate the many learning tools for students, including the frequent charts and tables summarizing key ideas and the "things to remember" at the end of every chapter."
"I've used this text in the past and I find this revision makes the text even stronger."
