Review

Here's what the reviewers are saying...

 

“I think the strengths of Clinical Social Work Practice include being thoroughly readable, being logically ordered, and covering a nice variety of theories and approaches (without being exhaustive and exhausting!).”

Jill Davis, University of Central Florida

From the Back Cover

The NEW EDITION of this primary text for advanced clinical practice courses at the core of the MSW curriculum teaches students how to integrate theory and practice on multiple levels.

Highlights of the New Edition:

  • Chapters 6-12 present clinical illustrations through the lenses of specific theoretical models, beginning with a detailed discussion of a theory and moving to assessment and treatment within that conceptual framework. Dialogue illustrates how theory guides practice.
  • Models of intervention are covered in seven chapters (Chapters 7-13). Each chapter presents a clinical illustration of an individual, family, or group and examines them using a specific theoretical model.

Reviewer reactions to Clinical Social Work Practice:

“I feel the authors do a fine job in the presentation of the material. The book is interesting, well written, and engaging. The authors succeeded in keeping my attention throughout the text.”
Robert H. Keefe, Syracuse University

“The core of the various psychologies and their application to clients is presented quite well.”
Carole A. Winston, University of North Carolina at Charlotte

This was a required text for one of the classes in my Masters in Social Work program. The content explaining the different theoretical approaches was certainly appropriate. However, the style of writing made the content more difficult to understand than necessary. Many times, I needed to reread a section, only to ask myself why the authors used so many words to say something simple. The cases studies were helpful. I did like how some of the studies highlighted the different techniques as they were being used. Overall, the book was too time consuming to try to understand and really get the gist of the ideas the authors were trying to convey.

Professors Joan Granucci Lesser and Marlene Cooper have shown themselves to be the newest dynamic duo of clinical social work. This text, one of the most refreshing and comprehensive in the field, will surely become a standard read for all social work students in the years to come.
Refreshing, consice, yet exceptionally detailed and well presented, "Clinical Social Work Practice" may very well define an entire generation of Social Work students. A must read for any student interested in the clinical social work field. Drs. Lesser and Cooper have shown themselves to be masters in the art of therapy, and their genius is apparent in their first textbook.
