Doman Lum's book helps students understand the pioneering multicultural counseling competence literature and to build from this foundation a culturally competent social work perspective. Culturally Competent Practice breaks new ground in cultural competency by presenting a model for understanding, measuring, and evaluating cultural competency. The book's practical, experiential approach and numerous exercises make it an excellent choice for courses at all levels. Lum goes beyond the usual and obvious differences as they relate to people of color to explain why cultural competency is important to human service professionals, and to demonstrate how to develop the skills necessary to become culturally competent--skills such as contact, problem identification, assessment, intervention, service delivery planning and implementation, and cultural skill research. The author takes a deeper look at more involved cultural issues, such as sexual preference and socioeconomic differences.

An awareness of one’s own ethical assumptions and how these inform everyday practice is crucial for all student social workers. Social workers who genuinely wish to do the right thing by their services users have no alternative but to constantly think and rethink the principles and assumptions that inform their actions, and this book supports them on their journey to do just that. This third edition is set out in two parts: Part I deals with broad ideas about values and ethics in general, looking at philosophy, religion and politics, as well as the duty of realism. Part II takes the discussion further, looking at how these general principles are relevant to everyday practice, with chapters on the use and misuse of power, the idea of self-determination, and the challenges of working with people whose experience and outlook are different to one’s own.

The demand for ethnic-sensitive social services in the twenty-first century continues to grow as ethnic diversity in the United States increases. With demographic projections revealing that populations of color will eventually outnumber Whites, helping professionals are increasingly challenged to define and deliver ethnic-sensitive services. In their meticulously documented and well-organized second edition, Iglehart and Becerra stress that analysis of the origins, evolution, and current state of social service delivery systems to ethnic communities is vital to the provision of ethnic-sensitive practice. Up-to-date sources provide expanded discussions of ethnic and racial-group history in the United States, White ethnics and their services, ethnicity and the development of social work, and the linkage of mainstream agencies to ethnic communities. Ethnic-sensitive practice is a puzzle that can be assembled through an understanding of the past, identification of contemporary issues, and recognition of the significance of race and ethnicity in American society. Through a synthesis of historical, theoretical, and empirical literature, this important work can empower social service providers to effectively address the needs of ethnic minorities and provide them with increased validation, visibility, and voice within their communities.
