£10.00 Plus post and packaging
Cultural competence is vitally important in social care. The need for practitioners to develop their skills in this area is becoming much more widely recognised. The first part of this book explores what the concept of cultural competence includes. It encourages the reader to be clear about their own cultural identity, explores oppression and culture and discusses how social care workers can develop the skills necessary to be culturally competent practitioners.
In the second part of the book a number of cultures and religions are discussed, providing staff with information that is relevant in working with individuals of faith or from a minority community. Possible implications for care are clearly stated.
