Institutional Racism and Community Competence.
Barbarin, Oscar A., Ed.; And Others
This is a collection of papers and research reports presented at a conference that focused on mental health issues and on individual, organizational, and community competence in relation to institutional racism. The report is divided into five sections. Section 1 discusses theoretical models of racism and community competence (community effectiveness in providing support systems for the physical and psychosocial needs ot its members). Section 2 emphasizes the importance of considering cultural pluralism in examining racism, provides a basis for understanding the cultural development and problems of minority groups, and suggests ways in which human services may serve diverse populations. Section 3 explores how forms of institutional racism vary in different settings, such as business, education, mental health, and the community as a whole, and suggests what might be done to reduce racism in particular contexts. Section 4 describes different approaches and instruments for measuring racism. Finally, section 5 presents various interventions for reducing racism in organizations, in education, and in the community. (Author/MJL)
