Books Info:

Cross-cultural Child Development for Social Workers free pdf Social workers today operate in an increasingly ethnically diverse society, yet many of the models that they use fail to reflect that diversity. Lena Robinson's exciting and innovative text draws on literature from Britain and North America to explain child development from a cross-cultural, black and ecological perspective. Using practice examples to illuminate key points for social workers, she considers a range of key topics from attachment to identity and communication to socialization. This will be essential reading for social workers at all stages of their careers who want to develop strength-based, anti-racist and culturally sensitive practice.
