I highly recommend [this] current volume as compelling and useful. Wolfer and Reitmeier shed light on dilemmas that we field educators need to address. -- Urania Glassman Wurzweiler School of Social Work Yeshiva University * Social Work with Groups *
Dilemmas in Social Work Field Education weaves together intersecting components of field education, providing engaging case material for teaching field educators and students. This book stands alone in terms of its comprehensiveness, content, and form. -- Beth Lewis, director of field education at Bryn Mawr College
So happy to finally see this book. Social work programs routinely use the previous decision books in practice classes, and now we have a book that reflects the complexities that arise in field placements. It is a bonus to also have an additional resource to use in training field instructors. -- D. Lynn Jackson, Texas Christian University
Wolfer and Reitmeier provide engaging decision cases that tap into an experiential method of learning, which encourages the reader to consider the multilayered dimensions of cases. Each case will spur rich discussions whether the audience is field instructors, field directors, or students. -- Janet Bradley, West Chester University of Pennsylvania
