Promoting Social Justice in the Multigroup Society: A Casebook for Group Relations Practitioners.
Rothman, Jack, Ed.
This volume represents a modest effort to meet the critical need for teaching materials of all sorts relating to work with racial and ethnic groups, both in social work and other human service professions. The approach taken here is to produce a range of source materials which illustrate and illuminate aspects of group relations practice. Such a source book, composed of cases, documents, episodes of practice, agency reports, etc., is intended to highlight issues and techniques and to provoke systematic analysis relative to this area of practice. Its purpose is both to teach and to stimulate further conceptualization concerning this very important field of work. The framework concerning group relations practice which is reflected in the book is broad and eclectic. The field is defined in terms of a series of functions designated Group Rights, Group Solidarity and Power, Intergroup Attitudes and Relationships, and Group Welfare. The term "group relations" is used to describe intervention in the ethnic and racial field and in other group relations areas. Material is included on a wide range of American groups: American Indians, blacks, Chicanos, Puerto Ricans, Catholics, Jews, Protestants, whites in the suburbs, blue-collar ethnic nationalities, and women.
