Encompassing the most current issues faced by multicultural families across the lifespan and the social workers who serve them, this popular textbook contains ten new chapters and provides content that has been significantly expanded throughout. These new and reconceived chapters offer professors and social work graduate students a broader and more comprehensive take on the key issues that arise when treating families from diverse cultural backgrounds and current, evidence-based models for assessment and treatment.

New chapters include:

  • Practice with Native American and indigenous families
  • Practice with Hispanic families
  • Practice with Arab families
  • Practice with adolescents
  • Practice with families when there is risk of suicide
  • Practice with families dealing with substance use and abuse
  • Practice with families around health issues
  • Legal issues with immigrants
