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.
