Editorial Reviews

Review

I know of no other work that provides such carefully detailed accounts of real life practice scenarios. The role of social workers and the dilemmas they face are illustrated beautifully across a variety of contexts. This volume serves as a valuable reference for all educators, students, and professionals seeking to understand the complexities of end-of-life care.

(Betty J. Kramer, University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Social Work)

A significant contribution. Faculty and students will appreciate having 'real life' decision cases that reflect the complexity of practice at end-of-life and during bereavement.

(Nancy Hooyman, School of Social Work at the University of Washington)

Review

Effective social work practice hinges on solid critical thinking. The authors of this book have created an excellent resource challenging social workers to determine what is relevant, analyze information accurately, and generate sound interventions. The provocative 'real world' case summaries that stimulate thought, discussion, and even discomfort are exactly the kind of educational tools students need to enhance their skill level.

(Mary Raymer, president, Raymer Psychotherapy and Consultation Services, and past social work section chair for the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After I received this book and reviewed the book, the format of the book was different than from what I was expecting. I was looking for a little more "advanced" clinical information for a professional in the field. I imagine that this is geared towards the academic setting to use with students, and it would be a great resource for that type of setting. If you are a professional in the field, then this would not be something you could take and use yourself as part of your own professional development. It has case studies that are more geared towards discussing and thinking about what took place. I will give it 5 stars as a book that would be excellent to use with students, or even to use as a discussion piece with a group of professionals.
