International Education Journal, v5 n3 p423-432 2004
In the United States, social work education has a mandate to train students for culturally sensitive social work practice. This mandate is becoming increasingly important as the United States becomes increasingly multicultural. This study presents data that assesses the degree to which social work education is fulfilling this mandate by exploring faculty perceptions regarding the preparedness of Master of Social Work students for culturally sensitive social work. In addition to the presentation of data, a literature review explores the history and role of culturally sensitive social work education in the United States. (Contains 4 tables.)
