Editorial Reviews

Review

"How the content is presented (i.e. demographics, historical oppression, theory, skills and case studies) is very consistent with what we try to achieve in our curriculum content. Also the clear articulation of cultural competence is quite important for our students to understand."

"This is a substantive practice-oriented book that is filled with content relevant to all persons who are affiliated with social and human services. It is a useful source for students and social service professionals in all areas and contexts, including those engaged as administrators, managers, supervisors, community organizers and social service practitioners." "It provides good current content on cultural competence, practice and process stages, and it provides good case studies of diverse populations. It includes what I look for in a text: knowledge and skills for practice."

"This text is very much needed because it brings together cultural competence and practice process steps."

"Great balance of historical knowledge and its applicability to client experiences. Good case studies, and assistance with questions for discussion."

Top Customer Reviews

By W Boudville HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on December 24, 2007
Format: Paperback
The book is for social workers who need to take into account the cultural and ethnic facets of their clients. Thus, there are chapters on dealing with native Americans (referred to in the book as First Nations people), African Americans, Latinos and Asians. But there are also a chapter for when a client might be gay or lesbian or bisexual or transgender. And another chapter for refugees and one for disabled clients.

Naturally, each chapter can only hope to briefly deal with its topic. The text is meant as a broad overview.

All this attests to the sheer complexity of dealing with the human condition. The book reminds us constantly of this. It is very commendable in the attention given to the diversity of client types and needs.

The book was in good condition. It had definitely had some use before, and since it is a paperback, the spine had some wear. However, this did not hinder my reading experience.
