Diane Deanda. Explore the cultural, familial, and community resilience and protective factors that are available to different youth populations in the U. The face of American youth is changing.

In , ethnic minority youth constituted one third of the adolescent population; by mid-century, the combined ethnic minority youth population will exceed the white adolescent population. This vital book illustrates the diversity within the adolescent population, examines the factors that serve as barriers and as facilitators to development, and identifies strengths and protective factors contributing to resilience as well as needs and risk factors. Social Work with Multicultural Youth presents accurate conceptual frameworks for understanding the experiences of ethnic youth to help you create culturally relevant interventions to promote their well-being.

The programs used Africentric principles and African-centered curriculum content, which instill traditional cultural values and incorporate discussion of historical socio-cultural influences. The studies showed evidence of the positive effects of these components by facilitating skills development for healthier relationships and increased couple satisfaction. Mitra Naseh and collaborators analyze studies on psychosocial treatments for refugees with post-traumatic stress disorder PTSD and explore the use of cultural adaptations.

Based on a systematic review of randomized controlled trials of nonpharmaceutical interventions, the authors found that eye movement desensitization and reprocessing EMDR psychotherapy had the strongest evidence of effectiveness. Common cultural adaptations in the implementation of treatment involved the restructuring of service settings, personnel, and format.

Several studies analyze the extent to which cultural practices that are valued by multicultural communities receive sufficient attention in social service provision. Samantha Hack, Christopher Larrison, Melanie Bennett, and Alicia Lucksted conducted a qualitative study to investigate if mental health care delivery systems draw on the African-American tradition of family and kin support. Research has shown frequent family contact and its positive effect on psychosocial functioning.

Based on interviews with 26 African American men with serious mental illness and 26 members of their kinship network, the authors found that although kin generally wanted to be involved in the care process, they were largely excluded from treatment planning and delivery. Some of the barriers to kin involvement included agency gatekeeping, confusion related to who to talk to, and misinformation about confidentiality restrictions. Emma Elliott-Groves carried out an exploratory study aiming to incorporate culturally relevant approaches to promote mental health in adolescents from the Cowichan Tribes.

In collaboration with the community, she developed an Indigenous biopsychosocial assessment and administered the protocol to a small group of youth.

She found that the protocol, in addition to gathering standard clinical information, tapped on important elements of Indigenous knowledge systems that can help in diagnosis and treatment. The youth were able to reflect on resources from Cowichan traditions, including multigenerational support and the healing power of Indigenous views on the cycle of life. The often unrecognized challenges that arise for providers serving multicultural communities, specifically in the context of culturally congruent care, are explored by Swathi Reddy.

An important theme that emerged from the interviews with the social workers centered on their efforts to reach out to their communities to break the silence around domestic violence, which they themselves had personally experienced. They strived to balance their understanding of their clients through the lens of their own cultural familiarity while questioning their assumptions of ethnic identity. In attempting to create relationships responsive to the cultural expectations of their South Asian clients, moreover, the social workers found themselves needing to push professional boundaries.

More than what needs to be done differently for different groups, the studies in this special issue indicate a reassessment of how we conceptualize practice with multicultural communities. The focus needs to be on the process of engaging with clients, on integrating the broader circumstances of their lives outside of our service settings, and on transforming service delivery systems Crampton, Crampton, A.

The study used an open-ended arts-based visual mapping technique. Although un-prompted, the refugee women are resisting the terminology that we use, almost word-for-word.

We were cool people who were forced to be uncool. The word refugee makes us feel like people are saying you are different, you do not fit in.

It is almost mocking our difficult past, which will always be a part of our interconnected identities. It is not only what defines us—we are much more than that. We need to do a better job of communicating the value of cultural richness to our students—from the perspective of the communities that we are concerned about—and put literature written by authors from these communities at the center of our teaching. Perhaps as a result of our current disconnect, social work underutilizes rich family and community networks.

By not facilitating their involvement, social service systems in effect create the conditions for the loss of these vital resources which social services cannot replace. The studies here show how facilitating their involvement can widen the circle of care. Other research supports this.

We need to expand professional boundaries to encompass indigenous practices, family and extended kin, and therapeutic relationships that make sense to different cultural groups. Or risk becoming irrelevant to their lives. No potential conflict of interest was reported by the authors.
