Overview

This book examines the prevailing theoretical frameworks for viewing diversity in social work practice and helps readers develop competencies for work with and on behalf of diverse populations. The theoretical frameworks presented in the book cover three major dimensions of the diversity theme in social work practice: ethnocultural diversity, oppression and social justice, and vulnerable, at-risk populations. While other books in the market tend to explore these dimensions through a single theoretical framework, Anderson provides an overview of these separate approaches.
