"In describing this book to a colleague, I would state that there is a very valuable text soon to be released that we would need to order. I believe this text will be a very valuable tool. I will definitely adopt this book because I believe that it includes well-written, accurate, valuable material for advanced human services students."
"This book would provide students and instructors with a knowledge base, applied practice in fieldwork, and an emphasis on diversity. It is well written, researched and structured. The writing style is professional yet comfortable to read and flows smoothly from one topic to another. . . very pleased with the seventh chapter on ethical and legal issues which now includes information on Codes of Ethics. The problem related areas/vignettes provide a concrete application of ethical dilemmas and issues which are sometimes seen as abstract to students."
