    schema:description "How can professionals who work with children and families deliver the best services while honoring different customs, beliefs, and values? The answers are in the fully revised fourth edition of this bestselling book, trusted for two decades as the gold-standard text on cross-cultural competence. For this timely edition, the highly regarded authors have updated and expanded every chapter while retaining the basic approach and structure that made the previous editions so popular. Professionals will get a primer on cultural competence; readers will examine how their own cultural values shape their practice, how the world views of diverse families may affect their perceptions of programs and services, and how providers can communicate more effectively with families from different cultural backgrounds. Professionals will deepen their understanding of cultural groups; learn from in-depth chapters with nuanced, multifaceted explorations of nine different cultural backgrounds: Anglo-European, American Indian, African American, Latino, Asian, Filipino, Native Hawaiian and Samoan, Middle Eastern, and South Asian. Readers will get invaluable insights on changing demographics, traditions, values, family structure, and attitudes toward child rearing and disability. Professionals will discover better ways to serve families; readers will get concrete, practical recommendations for providing more effective, sensitive, and culturally competent services to children and families. Vivid case stories and photos bring principles of cultural competence to life, and the helpful appendixes give professionals quick access to cultural courtesies and customs, key vocabulary words, significant cultural events and holidays, and more. Equally valuable as a textbook and a reference for in-service practitioners, this comprehensive book will prepare early interventionists and other professionals to work effectively with families whose customs, beliefs, and values may differ from their own. --Cover."@en ;
