Multicultural Approaches in Caring for Children, Youth, and Their Families emphasizes the importance of utilizing a pro-active, strengths-based practice strategy in working with multi-culturally diverse children, youth, families, organizations and communities.

 

The text adds to the body of child welfare practice knowledge by blending contemporary child issues with emphasis on practice skill enhancement.  The book’s authors have systematically focused on serving communities, child welfare organizations and families of different racial, ethnic, religious, economic, and structural backgrounds.  Emphasis is placed on developing a pro-active, strengths-based practice strategy. Each chapter contains rich case examples wherein the respective authors present teaching points designed to further the reader’s comprehension of knowledge for practice.  Our book also contains new material on white ethnics, working with torture victims, issues surrounding fairness and equity in the child welfare system, and administrative, policy practices and their interface with multicultural dynamics in services to children, youth and families.

What Reviewers Are Saying:

 

“This book offers practice knowledge that is relevant, important, and timely, is exactly what I have been searching for, and contains information that is necessary for today’s social workers....What [is] different in this proposed text is the depth of discussion of various cultures and challenges that we must address in our jobs, but which is (usually) only minimally discussed in other texts.”

--Jill C. Keogh, University of Missouri, Columbia

 

“The main attraction of this book is that it addresses critical issues:  history, dynamics, issues in a global and changing society.  These are issues that sometimes get overlooked in other texts....I would definitely be interested in using this text.”

--Susan Bowers, Northern Illinois University

 

“These chapters are well-written, sufficiently analytical and critical, and interesting

for students to read. The case vignettes discussed in various chapters are key strengths

of the text.”

--Sharon C. Wetterau, Ohio State University
