The Professional school dean : meeting the leadership challenges( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although the role of college and university presidents has received considerable attention over the past several decades, very little attention has been given to the role of deans. This is particularly apparent with respect to deans of professionals schools. This volume of New Directions for Higher Education begins to fill the void by focusing on the demanding leadership roles assumed by deans of social work, law, engineering, nursing, and divinity. Although the case illustrations draw primarily on the experiences of deans of social work, the contributors to this volume confirm that their deanship experiences are similar to those found in other professional schools

The challenge for mental health : minorities and their world views by Richard A English( Book )

4 editions published in 1984 in English and Undetermined and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research findings have confirmed the view that if mental health practice is to be relevant and responsive to minorities, it must consciously and deliberately take into account their ethnic heritage and culture. The world views of ethnic minorities, or the ways in which they perceive their relationship to nature, institutions, other people, and objects, can be divided into four major categories. The bicultural/multicultural world view draws upon multiple sources of culture and socialization experiences, from both traditional cultures and the mainstream cultural system. The acculturated/assimilated world view involves the acquisition of beliefs, attitudes and behaviors of a social group of which one is not a natural member. The native-oriented/traditional world view is based on patterns of behaviors, values, and beliefs of a group that shares a common historical past. The transitional/marginal world view refers to types of individuals who are suspended between their own ethnic identity and the mainstream culture. The process of identifying specific world views can be achieved by the cross-classification of two dimensions: the level of intensity and value an individual places on his/her own culture and identity; and the level of intensity and value placed upon involvement and participation in the mainstream culture. In the context of mental health, this typology can serve at least three main functions. It can be used for assessing the basic orientation of ethnic minorities to their own group and to the larger society; for providing a framework for considering related concerns such as values, language, beliefs, and behaviors; and for avoiding the errors of assuming that racial and ethnic minorities are unicultural, or that ethnic differences are "minor" variations on the mainstream culture. An 11-page bibliography concludes the document. (NRB)
