A niche of literary gems

"I am still learning."

If I have one goal in life, it is to keep my mind open to learning and exploring new ideas, thoughts, philosophies, and information. I regularly seek out new literature, and often return and re-visit some old favorites.

I share the following "cream of the crop" list, in hopes that others will also find appreciation and
new insight.

  • Mortally Wounded By Dr. Michael Kearney
  • Life Lessons by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross and David Kessler
  • Final Gifts by Maggie Callanan and Patricia Kelley
  • Spiritual Diversity in Social Work Practice by Leola Furman and Edward Canda
  • Multicultural Issues in Social Work by Patricia Ewalt, Edith Freeman, Stuart Kirk, and Dennis Poole
  • Art Therapy in Palliative Care: The Creative Response by Dame Cicely Saunders, Michele Wood, and Mandy Pratt
  • Psychodynamic Social Work Jerrold R. Brandell
  • International Social Work:Professional Action in an Interdependent World by Lynne M. Healy
  • The Practice of Macro Social Work by William G. Brueggemann
