It is easy to forget that beneath the abstractions of academia, the impersonal "clients" for whom programs, practice models, policies, and theories are developed, lies the individual human being whose story, though implied, is seldom fully told. In Rose's Story, stark reality fleshes out the abstractions found in textbooks. Rose (Wanda Bibb) reveals breaches of social justice, personal rights, and ethical responsibility, as well as self-serving policies, protocols, and rules that serve the system but not the needs of the client. She also tells of experiences with professionals who listened, cared, and made a difference in her life. This touching yet stark autobiography offers a firsthand look at adaptation and survival in an environment full of contradictions and imperfections. Rose speaks on behalf of many clients who fall through the cracks in our social welfare systems.

Review:

"I use this book in Introduction to Social Work so students see the field from the client's perspective. They always appreciate this assignment." --Jerry Jo Manfred-Gilham, Franciscan University

"I am considering using this as a required supplemental text for a course that focuses on social work practice skills with individuals. It humanizes the struggles faced by client populations and will likely be helpful in building empathy in students." --Diana Rowan, University of North Carolina

"Everyone can benefit from reading this book. But it is of particular value and importance to social service and mental health professionals because of Rose's long and close involvement with those systems. Her story shows how the human service professions can help and harm clients. The good intentions of our helping systems serve no good purpose if the individual s story isn't heard." --Marshall Ginsburg, University Hospital of Cincinnati
