"My overall reaction to the manuscript is a feeling of excitement! We needed just this kind of textbook preparing students for fieldwork and the impending workplace! This book provides linkage between the 'ideal and the real,' the theory and the practice. The strengths of the manuscript are the topics/themes/content, the examples, case scenarios, and exercises. The content on diversity, which is a common theme throughout the manuscript, is definitely a strength."
