Manufacturer Description

In response to the challenges faced by children's mental health programs operating in a diverse society, this book proposes strategies for developing cultural competence in a wide range of services. To help professionals improve existing programs, this volume offers self-assessment tools, troubleshooting suggestions, planning assistance, methods for recruiting and retaining ethnically diverse staff, and tips on operating in a managed care environment. The authors also tackle specific interagency challenges and special issues - such as stress in immigrant and refugee populations, the unique needs of infants and toddlers, and the psychological impact of violence - as related to children of color. Discussions of current systems and issues for future research help make this an indispensable volume for mental and public health professionals, health care administrators, social workers, and researchers.
