"Studying social work? If you buy one book.... buy this!! I've just completed a Masters in Social Work and bought this book a year ago: I'm on track for a good grade and, without a doubt, this has been my most-used book and has helped me with every single assignment! It gives a basic overview of a wide range of theories and models, giving each a clear description and critique. This provided keywords which then helped me to search academic articles/journals if I needed to explore the model/theory in more depth... Thank you!!"
