This book provides great information for SW practitioners. I highly recommend it, even in light of the DSM 5 changes. However, textbook prices are corrupt and unreasonable. There is no reason why textbooks have to be so darn expensive. Keep looking for the very cheapest books you can find. The price is the only reason I gave it 4 stars.

Required text for a class. Never even took the plastic wrapper off. Made a 100 in the class.

This is a short, sweet, and to the point book. It is not wordy, and flows well. The chapters are short, and the entire book is 349 pages, including an index section at the end of each chapter, which makes using it's sources in research a breeze. It offers a biopsychosocial checklist, and breaks down interventions for different populations. All in all it is a fairly quick read, and while I was assigned this for a masters level course it is basic enough for the undergraduate.
