Update: We got a wonderful testimonial from a reader!
“As a former admissions director in a school of social work, I spent lots of time looking for resources to best prepare incoming students for their studies and new careers. Years later, I’m delighted to discover this recently-released publication by Linda Grobman and Karen Zgoda. Contained in this book are the kinds of resources I’d tried to assemble for new social workers becoming acclimated to the scholarship and service of the profession. Needless to say, I’ll be sharing this important publication with colleagues and students enrolled in my social work courses.”
— Jeff T. Steen, LCSW, PhD student, adjunct instructor, New York University
