Review quote

"A book that fills a noticeable gap in the resources and literature available to social workers, especially those in clinical practice.... Roberts and Greene are to be commended for their contribution to the field."--Families in Society"Drs. Albert Roberts and Gilbert Greene have assembled a group of contributing scholars and practitioners unmatched in the history of social work. As a result, the Social Workers' Desk Reference is the most practical and comprehensive clinical reference book I have seen. This groundbreaking volume is a compendium of assessment protocols, step-by-step treatment plans, clinical wisdom, and the latest evidence-based practices. I strongly recommend this book to clinical social workers and researchers alike. It is a 'must have' reference text for all library shelves."--Diane Harrison Montgomery, Ph.D., ACSW, Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dean Emerita, School of Social Work, The Florida State University"This volume fills a long-neglected gap in the professional literature by providing clinical social work practitioners with a comprehensive resource for virtually all aspects of their practice with clients. The book will prove to be one that every practitioner will want to have and refer to frequently."--Richard L. Edwards, Ph.D., ACSW, Former President of National Association of Social Workers, Editor-in-Chief of the Encyclopedia of Social Work (1995)"All social workers are increasingly instructed, if not required, to use best practices and practice guidelines and protocols. This volume is the answer to the prayers of frontline social workers who do not have the time or resources for locating such information. This book is an absolutely essential tool for all social work practitioners."--Linda Brandeis, ACSW, ICSW, Social Work Supervisor, Harborview Medical Center, Seattle, Washington; President-Elect, Society of Social Work Leadership in Health Care"This volume will become essential and indispensable to social workers in all fields of practice, as we advance social work practice in the twenty-first century. It is a landmark achievement."--Paula Allen-Meares, Ph.D., Dean and Professor of Social Work, University of Michigan; President, Society of Social Work and Research"This will be the classic reference work for social workers for years to come. It is an extraordinarily comprehensive compendium . . . a landmark publication."--Monica McGoldrick, M.S.W., Director, Multicultural Family Institute of New Jersey "A book that fills a noticeable gap in the resources and literature available to social workers, especially those in clinical practice....
