Reviews

Shared Trauma, Shared Resilience During a Pandemic: Social Work in the Time of COVID-19 is a goldmine for social work practitioners, educators, and students. Carol Tosone, herself a treasure, has done the impossible – put together a volume about the pandemic DURING the pandemic. Carol might be the only person who has the editorial skills and depth of clinical knowledge to create a volume that validates the experiences of frontline workers and educates the reader about shared trauma in the dual pandemics of racism and COVID-19. Educators and students at the undergraduate and graduate levels will appreciate the breadth of populations, problems, and settings covered in the text.” (Jonathan B.  Singer, PhD, LCSW, Associate Professor, School of Social Work, Loyola University Chicago; Founder and Host of the Social Work Podcast)
