"How the content is presented (i.e. demographics, historical oppression, theory, skills and case studies) is very consistent with what we try to achieve in our curriculum content. Also the clear articulation of cultural competence is quite important for our students to understand."
"This is a substantive practice-oriented book that is filled with content relevant to all persons who are affiliated with social and human services. It is a useful source for students and social service professionals in all areas and contexts, including those engaged as administrators, managers, supervisors, community organizers and social service practitioners." "It provides good current content on cultural competence, practice and process stages, and it provides good case studies of diverse populations. It includes what I look for in a text: knowledge and skills for practice."
"This text is very much needed because it brings together cultural competence and practice process steps."
