This book inspires people to make a difference in their work with others. While all too often our society is fascinated by evil rather than goodness, Doing Good celebrates the passion, exhilaration, and excitement that accompany acts of service, while also recognizing that there are some sacrifices that are made along the way. Told through the experiences of those who "do good" for a living or as an avocation, this book reflects the realities of helping others through those who are successful and flourishing in their work.
Doing Good is appropriate as a text in both undergraduate and graduate courses for students in counseling, psychology, social work, education, nursing, or other human services. It is, however, also intended for the lay reader interested in "doing good", professional practitioners in the helping professions, or the many volunteers working in local, regional, national, or international volunteer organizations.
