From the Foreword
"Danna pays attention to life’s details with a psychotherapist’s insight and writes about them with the passion of a slam poet. She speaks to the soul of social work and inspires us to think about more than just social work."
Jonathan B. Singer, Ph.D., LCSW
Associate Professor, Loyola University Chicago
Founder and host, Social Work Podcast
"I read Danna’s writing with excitement because I know that, in her reflections, I will find some of my own truths. I find myself thinking that we are so different from each other. After all, we are of different ages, races, sexual orientations, religions, family structures. Yet, I consistently find connection to her thoughts and feelings. Her writing is honest, passionate, and filled with wisdom."
Valerie Dorsey Allen, DSW, LSW
Director, African-American Resource Center

"Dr. Bodenheimer writes not only about “how to” for social workers but also talks about the role of the social workers themselves. This emphasis on self reflection is often missing from treatment manuals."
Sean Erreger, LCSW

"Dr. Bodenheimer’s book offers pearls of wisdom that all clinical social workers, ranging from novices to seasoned practitioners, can truly benefit from. I plan to include this book as recommended reading on the Advanced Social Work Practice [and] Leadership and Management course syllabi that I teach."

About the Author
Dr. Danna Bodenheimer, LCSW, lives and works in Philadelphia, PA. She received both her bachelor's and master's degrees from Smith College, in addition to attending a post-baccalaureate program in psychology at Columbia University. Danna went on to receive her doctorate in social work from the University of Pennsylvania. Danna divides her time between consulting, supervising, writing, and practicing. After nearly 10 years in private practice, Danna opened the Walnut Psychotherapy Center, an outpatient, trauma-informed mental health practice that serves the LGBTQ population. The practice makes use of psychodynamic therapy and strives to make long-term mental health treatment affordable and available to as many people in Philadelphia as possible. Danna has taught at the University of Pennsylvania, Temple University, Rutgers University, and currently at Bryn Mawr's Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research. She teaches clinical practice and classes on gender and sexuality. Danna is now the head of the Walnut Psychotherapy Center. She is the mother of two fascinating and inquisitive young boys. She uses social work theory to understand both her personal life and her professional life, strongly believing that social work is the field that will lead us forward into a more equitable and just future. Using Philadelphia as a landscape to study issues of oppression, intersecting identities, and complex socioeconomic struggle, Danna's love of and commitment to social work deepens steadily over time. Danna received the 2011-2012 Award for Excellence in Teaching from the University of Pennsylvania. She was also selected as a fellow for the American Psychoanalytic Association for 2012-2013. She is a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) in Pennsylvania.
