Social workers looking to provide competent practice with African-American families may be more effective by using a new strengths-based approach from an intergenerational perspective. Social Work Practice with African-American Families: An Intergenerational Perspective presents a comprehensive look at this new approach to view, assess, and provide services to multigenerational families and communities. This insightful resource closely examines this innovative framework, which encourages opportunities for action to create solutions for survival and change. The approach dynamically considers the changing demographics in American society, key issues, and the various challenges pertinent to the African-American community.
