Multicultural Issues in Social Work presents a collective vision of multiculturalism. Reflecting the multicultural reality of the United States, the book calls for research and practice based on the knowledge that individuals cannot be readily identified by single cultural categories. Multiculturalism is used to describe the professional disposition to acknowledge, appreciate, and understand cultural diversity. The book will help researchers, policymakers, and practitioners in their work with diverse populations. Faculty will find it superb for teaching courses that meet curriculum policy requirements for content about diversity. Special Features *Collects 38 insightful articles from 1994 and 1995 issues of the four NASW Press journals. *Contains knowledge about various racial and ethnic groups--African American, American Indian, Asian, Caucasian, Latino, Pacific Islander--as well as cultures based on a shared place of residence or physical condition. *Offers useful content on different age groups--children, youths, young adults, and older people. *Provides substantive background for advocacy to change social structures that create and maintain oppressive conditions. *Addresses multiculturalism from a broad, inclusive framework and provides in-depth discussions about human diversity from an ecological perspective. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Synopsis:

This book outlines new strategies for helping diverse groups and communities to gain their voices and enhance their capabilities. You will develop an understanding of changes in multicultural practice skills now required by the revised NASW Code of Ethics. Learn subtleties in cultural patterns and political circumstances in diverse immigrant populations that affect your practice approaches. And develop new skills for responding to new public policies that reflect movements toward victim blaming, cost containment and cultural intolerance.
