Overview

This fascinating book addresses the cultures and concerns of five major ethnic groups: Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Asian Indian, and Vietnamese. Social Work Practice with the Asian-American Elderly examines the diverse needs of this rapidly growing population. It suggests interventions and service-delivery models that are culturally sensitive and appropriate for these clients, many of whom are first-generation immigrants still closely linked with their cultures of origin. This comprehensive book serves as a timely resource for both researchers and practitioners concerned with this neglected yet rapidly growing segment of the elderly population.

Social Work Practice with the Asian-American Elderly offers both quantitative and qualitative research on essential topics, including:

  • migratory grief
  • assimilation
  • depression
  • elderly nutrition programs
  • social support
