Additional topics include the hearing-impaired, visually-impaired, and social work practice with refugees. A significant updating of many of the chapters from the previous two editions is included, enhancing the knowledge concerning social work practice. An excellent resource for increased knowledge and sensitivity, the book is designed for both undergraduate and graduate students, as well as for practitioners who desire to perfect their skills in working with culturally diverse clients.--Publisher website
