The Dual Perspective: Inclusion of Ethnic Minority Content in the Social Work Curriculum.
Norton, Dolores G.; And Others.
The need for a dual perspective on the part of social workers to work with minority clients and its use in social work education is discussed. The Human Behavior and Social Environment (HBSE) sequence of a social work curriculum is discussed from the dual perspective, and material illustrating how the dual perspective and minority content can be incorporated into an HBSE sequence course is presented. This book explores the use of the dual perspective in method courses and the practicum and presents materials for both practicum and practice in a pluralistic society. It then focuses on the dual perspective and the Social Welfare Policy and Services sequence, presenting material with substantive content and highlighting differences in perspective. Material is provided on American Indians, Asian Americans, Blacks, and Latinos. (Author/SPG)
