MEDIA REVIEWS
"Most of us who oversee social work field education programs are acutely and consistently aware of the risks inherent in social work practice. Indeed, the Tri-State Consortium of Field Directors has been on a resolute quest for a perspective that would address client violence against social workers, and that would meet our criteria for scientific evidence. Christina Newhill's scholarly approach provides that gold standard. This book is an essential addition to the libraries of every social worker and social service agency, as well as every social work student, practice professor, and field director. Moreover, no administrator should allow another day to pass without instituting Newhill's policy and strategy recommendations."--Sharon C. Lyter, PhD, LCSW, School of Social Work, Southern Region, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

"Newhill's book is a masterful balance of insight, clinical experience, and rigorous research. It should be required reading for clinical or direct practice social workers who intervene with clients in the fields of substance abuse, criminal justice, child welfare, mental health, or any related field where angry or potentially violent clients are encountered."--Lambert Maguire, PhD, LSW, ACSW, School of Social Work, University of Pittsburgh

"This book is a true tour de force, an admirable integration of research findings and clinical wisdom. Newhill recognizes that predicting and managing violence is an inherent part of social work practice, and instead of shying away from the complexities of this task, she presents invaluable information about how to address this challenge effectively. The book mixes sound reviews of available research with solid suggestions for improving practice with potentially violent clients. Newhill's extensive clinical experience and her in-depth knowledge of the research shine through and complement each other very well here. The book manages to be scholarly, engaging, and instructive, all at the same time. It is an extremely valuable teaching tool for systematically introducing social work graduate students to a potentially overwhelming topic."/m-/Edward P. Mulvey, PhD, Law and Psychiatry Program, Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
