Minority Content in Social Work Education: A Question of Objectives
Preview not available

Abstract

The development of knowledge and skills related to ethnic minority groups has become an increasingly visible and important priority for social work education. However, professional consensus regarding the anticipated effects of minority content on students appears to be lacking, with training programs focusing on students' racial attitudes, their beliefs about minority clients, or practice behavior appropriate for interracial situations. This article discusses various objectives for minority content in the curriculum and identifies two training models that are consistent with the professional literature on racial attitudes and beliefs and their implications for practice.
