This book examines race and ethnicity in relation to social work theories and practices and acknowledges the complexities in these concepts. Part one looks at: emerging ethnicities as a theoretical framework; a theoretical framework for ethnic sensitivity for social work practice; multicultural organisational development; and inclusive thinking and acting. Part two is on: the social pedagogical model in the multicultural society; the experience of Zimbabwe in using social development as a model of social work practice; and social work education with migrants and refugees in France. Part three examines mainstream social work practice with diverse user groups, including black and minority ethnic older people, children and people with mental health problems. Part four focuses on reclaiming heritages through social work practice and contains chapters on: renewing first nations ways of helping; a Maori social work construct; and appropriateness of social work practice with communities of African origin.
