Max Siporin (1917–2010), professor emeritus at the State University of New York at Albany, made significant contributions to the social work literature with the publication of the widely used textbook entitled Introduction to Social Work Practice, which became the gold standard for teaching social work in many schools of social work. He was also among the first social workers to publish on the topic of social work and marriage and family therapy in psychiatric settings and to testify as an expert in social work in a court of law.
