Encyclopedia of Human Services and Diversity

Three Volume Set
Edited by:


© 2014 | 1 632 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc

Encyclopedia of Human Services and Diversity is the first encyclopedia to reflect the changes in the mission of human services professionals as they face today’s increasingly diverse service population. Diversity encompasses a broad range of human differences, including differences in ability and disability, age, education level, ethnicity, gender, geographic origin, religion, sexual orientation, socioeconomic class, and values. Understanding the needs and problems of Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans, the deaf, the blind, the LGBT community, and many other groups demands an up-to-date and cutting-edge reference. This three-volume encyclopedia provides human services students, professors, librarians, and practitioners the reference information they need to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse population.

Features:

  • 600 signed entries are organized A-to-Z across three volumes.
  • Entries, authored by key figures in the field, conclude with cross references and further readings.
  • A Reader’s Guide groups related articles within broad, thematic areas, such as aging, community mental health, family and child services, substance abuse, etc.
  • A detailed index, the Reader’s Guide, and cross references combine for search-and-browse in the electronic version.
  • A helpful Resource Guide guides students to classic books, journals, and web sites, and a glossary assists them with the terminology of the field.

Available in both print and electronic formats, Encyclopedia of Human Services and Diversity is an ideal reference for students, practitioners, faculty and librarians.
