Cultural awareness in the helping professions is crucial to providing the best possible care. In this expanded new edition of Cross-Cultural Practice, the authors uniquely present factors common to diverse ethnic and cultural populations that are useful in building cross-cultural competence. Building on the existential concepts of Victor Frankl, the text provides a framework for helping families and individuals discover meaning and meaning opportunities in daily living. The book is organized into chapters dedicated to specific population profiles. New chapters give an overview of key concepts used throughout the book and summarize the authors' theoretical approach toward cross-cultural practice.

This updated edition builds on the first edition and retains its benefits: the distinctive existential perspective on diversity and on helping diverse groups, the use of actual case material to illustrate the existential challenges and curative factors, and the message that the authors are passionately and intelligently committed to helping social workers better serve vulnerable and oppressed groups." James Forte, Salisbury University
The book integrates the themes of the eight cross-cultural factors and the four existential "treatment elements" well. The chapters have been substantially enlarged and improved, and the case studies are excellent!" Shirley R. Hall, New Mexico Highlands University
