In this updated edition, all cases have been thoroughly revised to reflect changes in legislation, economic developments, and industry trends. All data have been updated or modified, and new organizational entities have been added, including a new case that portrays a community mental health center.

The book works equally well in capstone courses and multiple foundational courses, or as a recurring element woven throughout a program’s entire curriculum.
