Rather than focusing on specific groups, this book takes a "pancultural" perspective that focuses on the common experiences of refugees and immigrants. The author focuses on empirically-based practice approaches; assessment and intervention techniques that have been scientifically validated. Based on this approach the book presents the "best practice" for each problem area.

Adopting a pancultural perspective that focuses on the common experiences of working with immigrants and refugees, this work provides advice on the best ways to conduct social work. The author focuses primarily on practice in the United States but draws on literature from around the world. After looking at contextual issues such as government policy and service delivery systems, chapters address specific problems from a psychosocial perspective. Problems addressed include health, mental health, family dynamics, education and economic well-being, and interethnic relations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
