Summary

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.
