Reviewer Reaction to "Contemporary Human Behavior Theory"
"I would definitely adopt this as a primary textbook for Foundation and advanced HBSE courses. It is also a valuable supplementary text in direct practice courses. It is exceptionally well written and conceptualized."
"I see many strengths in this text. Most importantly, the text covers material that I believe is critical in social work education. There simply is no other text that I have found that covers this content."
