What the reviewers are saying... "Carpetto calls for a humble, genuine approach to the client which is consistent with the humanistic perspective he is utilizing, but does so in a manner that is instructional for the beginning student as well as the clinician in early career; this is to be applauded." "Linda McIntire, University of Indianapolis" "The author is a very good teacher and has worked very hard to assemble a set of assorted and challenging learning activities. The orientation toward client strengths, collaborative helping relationships, and a worker stance of not-knowing fits well with social work values. The author does a great job explaining, illustrating, and presenting variations on each of the major strategies." "James A. Forte, Salisbury University" "The author clearly has exceedingly high mastery of his content. He has a wealth of knowledge to share about each of the models he is writing about." "Lindee Petersen Wilson, Avila University"
