In an increasingly diverse social environment misunderstandings are inevitable between human services professionals and clients from different racial or ethnic backgrounds. This book attempts to eliminate many of these misunderstandings with investigations into the culturally specific beliefs and childrearing practices of five major racial or ethnic groups.... These beliefs are illustrated with analyses of case vignettes and reflect the author's dual focus on the views of culturally diverse clients and the perspective of the practitioners themselves.(Journal of Social Work Education)
I found this book to be extrememly informative and a potent resource for any helping professional and students in clinical programs.(Kyle Killian Journal of Family Psychotherapy)
