The fully-updated second edition of Diversity, Oppression, and Change introduces readers to the practice of culturally grounded social work and closely examines the diversity issues most relevant for practice, policy, and research in social work and allied fields. In order for a social workerto affect positive change, it is critical to understand how the intersectionality of social factors-including race, ethnicity, social class, gender, sexual orientation, and ability status-affect not only the client but also the social worker.The authors of this book unpack the complex theory-based concepts related to oppression and privilege so that readers can learn to appropriately address the impact of historically-based oppression for certain groups and communities. Working with these communities to identify oppressive conditions,culturally grounded social workers facilitate real and lasting social change that will result in a more just society.

This book moves beyond cultural awareness to provide a theoretical framework, a comprehensive review of methods, and applied case studies as tools for integrating essential knowledge about the cultural backgrounds of communities and clients into everyday interactions."--Publisher's website.

The first edition of this volume successfully applied Bronfenbrenner's "micro-systems" taxonomy to childrearing and family life. Emphasizing how forces in the environment influence children's behavior, Garbarino has staked out an intermediate position between the psychoanalytic and the systems approach to human development. Taking cognizance of new research and of changes in American society, Garbarino has once again carefully analyzed the importance of children's social relationships. For this wholly revised second edition, he has incorporated a greater emphasis on ethnic, cultural, and racial issues.
