'In this interdependent and increasingly interconnected world, no profession can exclude global learning. This is particularly true for social work, which deals with problems that affect all humanity, no matter how wide the differences in social, economic, and cultural circumstances. Hokenstad and Midgley have long since grasped this truth.'
Katherine A. Kendall, PhD, MSW
Retired Secretary General of the International Association of Schools of Social Work (IASSW)

Although social workers in the United States are regarded as among the world's leaders in formulating innovative approaches to social work and social welfare, U.S. policymakers have much to learn from colleagues in other nations. No matter how well developed or tested practice and policy approaches may be, there is always the opportunity to share experiences and learn from others. In Lessons from Abroad, renowned international social work experts Hokenstad and Midgley examine how domestic policies and practice can be enhanced by documenting, analyzing and judiciously adapting innovative approaches emanating from other countries.
