MBR reviews Pretreatment in Action

SynopsisPretreatment In Action: Interactive Exploration from Homelessness to Housing Stabilization by Jay S. Levy, MSW (and who has spent more than thirty years working with individuals who experience homelessness) provides the reader with a wonderfully crafted, detailed step-by-step manual with real-world scenarios on how Pretreatment and the Stages of Engagement play out in the actual work in dealing with a social issue here in the United Sates that is growing worse in every major American city. The vignettes are rich with descriptions that clearly come from a deep repertoire of experience working in the field that gives the reader confidence they are being guided by someone who has been in their shoes. The thoughtful questions and space to reflect add a helpful workbook touch to the feel of the text, and matches the grittiness of the material being covered.

Critique: Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, Pretreatment In Action: Interactive Exploration from Homelessness to Housing Stabilization must be considered essential reading for every citizen and governmental official concerned with and/or dealing with the growing problem of homelessness in America. While highly recommended as a core addition to community, college, university, and governmental Contemporary Social Issues collections, it should be noted for the personal reading lists of community activists, social workers, governmental policy makers, students, academia, and non-specialist general readers with an interest in the subject that “Pretreatment In Action: Interactive Exploration from Homelessness to Housing Stabilization” is also readily available in a paperback edition (9781615995943, $27.95) and in a digital book format (Kindle, $9.95).
