Book review: This book has much to offer social work and human services students. It covers many key theories, ideas, and debates relevant to a wide range of practice fields in a comprehensive, clearly organised, and engaging fashion. The author proposes, as on overarching premise, a “multidimensional” approach to understanding lifespan development and experiences of trauma, stress, and grief, as well as responses of adaptation and resilience across the life course. Consistent with social work values, the multidimensional approach “places an emphasis on the constant interaction of the biological, psychological, and spiritual dimensions of our inner worlds with the relational, social, structural, and cultural dimensions of our outer worlds” (p. 394).
