Praise for Developing Practice Competencies A Foundation for Generalist Practice “This is the textbook I have been waiting for. The author engages the reader from the very beginning. It includes comprehensive coverage of EPAS standards and practice behaviors that any social work instructor would be delighted with. Mark Ragg’s explanation of social work concepts and practice skills is very readable and well illustrated. This textbook will enhance social work students’ self-confidence in their skills as beginning practitioners. This is an author who clearly knows how to engage and excite social work students about contemporary social work.
