From "Diversity Perspectives for Social Work Practice," Edited by Joseph Anderson and Robin Wiggins Carter, Pearson, 2003 / Call No. HV3176.D594 2003
"Social work needs to be at the heart (if not a large part of the heart itself) of turning the corner toward enhancing well-being and accomplishing social justice -- the two tests that society and the social work profession must pass in addressing diversity issues and the potentials and obstacles in evolving as a healthy global community."
by Joseph Anderson, Chapter 1, Introduction and Organization: Diversity Perspectives

It addresses the needs of social workers working in a variety of areas--including assessment and diagnosis, clinical social work, marital and family therapy, community practice, case management, helping vulnerable populations and populations at risk, forensic social work, research, and practice evaluation. Written by expert contributors and guided by a prestigious editorial board, the Social Workers' Desk Reference is not only relevant to, but also a vital resource for practitioners.
