Social Work Practice with Asian Americans

Edited by:


April 1992 | 250 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
From the resettlement experiences of Indochinese refugees to the cross-generational differences of early Japanese immigrants and their descendants, this impressive volume provides vital information on the issues, needs and services for Asian Americans. Written by an outstanding collection of scholars, Social Work Practice with Asian Americans offers a comprehensive treatment of social work theory and practice as they relate to Asian Americans. The contributors stress the profound differences between the value systems of Asian Americans and mainstream American culture by including descriptions of recently arrived immigrants and refugees and their resettlement in the United States. They also analyze the continued adjustment of descendants; offer models, frameworks, and concepts for effective social service practices; discuss problems experienced by adolescent gangs, Korean American elderly and minority women; introduce successful intervention methods; and cite implications for social work education and practice with Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. With thousands of Asian Americans residing in the United States, and thousands more entering each year as immigrants and refugees, Social Work Practice with Asian Americans is essential reading for students and professionals in social work, ethnic studies, psychiatry, public health, gender studies, and gerontology.
