The social work profession has long recognized the need for diversity-sensitive practice, for a special competence in addressing the cultural differences among the clients one encounters in human services settings. Both major social work organizations have stressed this need, the CSWE in its accreditation standards, the NASW in its code of ethics. This book explores how social workers have used the theoretical perspective of the ecosystem - a popular paradigm to examine the relationship between people and their environments to provide culturally competent social work services in a number of fields of practice and settings.
Until now, the texts that have addressed practice with specific diverse groups have not attempted to offer models for general practice principles across cultures and groups, or to help social workers develop a multicultural world view that responds to the increasingly complex environments in which they work with clients. The contributors to this book furnish just such models. Long needed, it will be widely adopted in human behavior and in practice courses.
