Develop improved levels of cultural competency with the case study examples and self-awareness tools in this guide for caring professionals
Kieran O'Hagan is an established writer and former Reader in the School of Social Work at The Queen's University, Belfast. He worked for over twenty years in the social services in Britain. He has also lectured and worked in Australia, India and the USA. He has published many books and articles on a wide range of subjects in welfare and in training, including child abuse, crisis intervention, social work competence and the abuse of women in family and child care.
This material will be a good teaching resource, and is rightly included as part of the way forward, for by the end of this book, O'Hagan has made a convincing case for people who work in the caring professions to develop and practise improved levels of cultural competency. This book provides a great resource for students and practitioners learning about cultural sensitivity. It is challenging, and the personal disclosures in the Acknowledgements and Epilogue speak for the sincerity with which the challenges are made. I encourage people in the caring professions to take them up. -- International Social Work The idea of cultural competence has become the big idea in health care and is beginning to creep into social care. This is a useful book that provides an opportunity to reflect on the issues and differences between anti-racist and culturally sensitive practice. -- Community Care
