This is a casebook for social workers and social work students. The characters in these vignettes are real people who came to a caseworker to tell their stories. Each describes his situation in his own words. These are authentic case histories with only names and places modified to protect identities. Problems include sexual abuse, substance addiction, memories from concentration camp experience, and family dysfunction. Samples of chapter titles are: "I Don't Need No Transplant", "Russia Wasn't Like That", "My Insides Want to Go; My Outsides Can't", and "I Was Too Shy to Say Sex".
