Synopsis:
This groundbreaking new social work text, authored by one of the most prominent and respected pioneers in diversity research and practice with culturally diverse people and grounded in the principles of the best-selling Counseling the Culturally Diverse, is sure to become a classic in its own right. Recently appointed Professor to Columbia University's School of Social Work, the largest graduate program in the country, Derald Sue has synthesized the important theoretical, political, and philosophical concepts presented in Counseling the Culturally Diverse and reframed them for social work students, focusing on the acquisition of awareness, knowledge, and skills for culturally sensitive social work practice. Challenging traditional worldviews and highlighting the sociopolitical and social justice aspects of effective social work practice, Multicultural Social Work Practice features sections on conceptual dimensions, political dimensions, and clinical dimensions of social work practice, as well as sections on worldviews and how to work with culturally diverse populations.
