Issues in Culturally Competent Service Delivery: An Annotated Bibliography. Minority Cultural Initiative Project.
Rider, Mary Elizabeth; Mason, James L.
This annotated bibliography was developed as a part of the Minority Cultural Initiative Project to help explore the issue of culturally competent service delivery to children and youth with emotional disabilities and their families. The review was limited to contemporary perspectives spanning the last three decades and covering communities or groups of color within the United States. It is an attempt to present theoretical perspectives regarding culturally appropriate service delivery and to show practice applications of theory and research. The bibliography is divided into a section of approximately 50 entries addressing multicultural issues and four sections addressing culturally specific areas: African-American (20 entries); Asian-American/Pacific Islander (six entries); Hispanic-Latino American (13 entries); and Native American (39 entries). The annotations offer a blend of both cognitive and behavioral dimensions. Author and subject indexes are provided. (JDD)
