Each chapter includes indigenous strategies and/or a biculturalization approach to assessments, interventions, and evaluations. Levels of practice include individuals, families, organizations, and communities. Each chapter includes case vignettes that illustrate the helping strategies. For social workers and social work students interested in culturally competent social work practice, or diversity practice.
