Social Work Practice with Asian Americans

Edited by:


June 1995 | 250 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Insight into the profound differences between the value systems of Asian American and mainstream American culture is provided by this volume by means of a comprehensive treatment of social work theory and practice with an ethnic minority.

The contributors discuss both historical and contemporary experiences Asian Americans have had in adapting to and integrating into American society, and explore intervention issues with specific client populations such as Vietnamese refugee women and Korean American elderly.
