Social Work Practice in Nontraditional Urban Settings

In an era of diminishing resources, communities that have historically been served by professionals in established social service settings can no longer rely on outside resources and assistance to meet their needs. Social Work Practice in Nontraditional Urban Settings focuses on the importance of developing models that are specific to urban areas, models which help facilitate and promote conversation and advice and reduce the stigma for those seeking assistance. Delgado suggests that communities can best be served through their own, already-established recreational, social, and cultural centers. He shows professional social workers how they can use these nontraditional settings -- beauty shops, bars, and grocery stores -- to reach out to the communities they are trying to help. This allows social work service to be based on the community's own strengths, while developing the community's capacity to help itself with assistance from professionals. These institutions play influential and very active roles in providing assistance to community residents in need, offering social workers the unique opportunity to identify, engage, and plan services with communities. Often these centers are staffed by people that have a similar ethnic, socio-economic, and racial background to the rest of the community, thereby maximizing their psychological, geographical, and cultural accessibility to the community. Delgado offers a dramatic paradigm shift for social workers, showing that service delivery can take place in any setting, formal or informal. He integrates a multicultural perspective which highlights and identifies a variety of innovative methods, stressing that there is no one way of providing assistance to a community in need. Social Work Practice in Nontraditional Urban Settings is ideal for graduate courses in social work as well as for any course in human behavior and the social environment.

Edukacja międzykulturowa - przewodnik to opracowanie adresowane do badaczy, nauczycieli, uczniów i studentów oraz innych osób zainteresowanych zróżnicowaniem kulturowym w kontekście edukacyjnym. Zawiera definicje oraz historię ewolucji podstawowych kategorii pojęciowych (m.in. zróżnicowanie kulturowe, wielokulturowość, międzykulturowość, granice i pogranicza, człowiek pogranicza i tożsamość międzykulturowa); rys historyczny edukacji w warunkach zróżnicowania kulturowego (edukacja wielokulturowa, międzykulturowa, regionalna, obywatelska) oraz pedagogiki międzykulturowej jako poddyscypliny pedagogicznej; listę prawie 500 tytułów literatury przedmiotu oraz ponad 80 adresów stron internetowych instytucji, organizacji i projektów edukacyjnych dotyczących tej problematyki. Może służyć zarówno jako podręcznik do zajęć z edukacji międzykulturowej, jak i jako pomoc naukowa przy pisaniu prac oraz poszukiwaniu pomysłów do koncepcji edukacji międzykulturowej. Podejmowana tu problematyka jest obecnie „modna” nie tylko ze względu na coraz częstsze pojawianie się zjawisk związanych z występowaniem mniejszości kulturowych domagających się swoich praw, ale również z uwagi na coraz liczniejsze kontakty z cudzoziemcami - np. podczas migracji. Jak dotąd w Polsce nie ukazało się podobne opracowanie.
