9780534055868: Social Work Practice and People of Color: A Process-stage Approach

This text offers a practical and well-defined five-stage model of social work practice with culturally diverse communities. While the book specifically looks at practice with persons of color (African-American, Asian -American, Latino, and First Nations people), it is intended to be relevant for culturally and ethnically sensitive practice with any individual or population.

Review:

"...continues to articulate and demonstrate what culturally competent professional practice is, and what is looks like when implemented. In respect to foundational material, the text continues to look at theoretical perspectives upon which major social work interventions are based. Lum's work at reviewing such theoretical perspectives in respect to their application to culturally sensitive social work practice remains stellar...(E)stablish(es) a good deal of foundational material student(s) need for meaningful relationship-building with people of color, and more broadly, minority group member..."

"...This is a thorough, well-researched, organized and written book, that leaves no stone unturned in exploring social work theory and practice applications in social work with people of color. Additionally, it covers areas that are not well-covered in some other analogous texts (women of color, older people of color, multicultural gays and lesbians, impact of spirituality, etc.) The book really heightens consciousness and awareness of how diversity infiltrates every aspect of social work practice and needs to be considered at all times."
