Developing Cross-Cultural Competence: A Guide for Working With Children and Their Families (2nd ed.): Families with Native American Roots [Chapter 5]
Eleanor W. Lynch, Marci J. Hanson
This book draws on the insights of authors from a variety of racial, linguistic, and cultural backgrounds to provide practical advice for working with children and families from similarly diverse backgrounds. Part 1 introduces the issues at the heart of such work, and includes the chapters "Ethnic, Cultural, and Language Diversity in Intervention Settings" (Marci J. Hanson), "Conceptual Framework: From Cultural Shock to Cultural Learning" (Eleanor W. Lynch) and "Developing Cross-Cultural Competence" (Eleanor W. Lynch). Part 2 introduces culture-specific information about the history, values, and beliefs common to a number of subgroups within the United States population, focusing on issues related to family, child rearing, health, and disability. Cultures thus addressed include: Anglo-European (Marci J. Hanson), Native American (Jennie R. Joe and Randi Suzanne Malach), African American (Winnie Willis), Latino (Maria E. Zuniga), Asian (Sam Chan), Philipino (Sam Chan), Native Hawaiian and Samoan (Noreen Mokuau and Pemerika Tauili'ili), and Middle Eastern (Virginia-Shirin Sharifzadeh). A separate chapter by Eleanor W. Lynch and Marci J. Hanson addresses the increasing numbers of multicultural/multiracial families. Lynch and Hanson also provide a final chapter synthesizing the accumulated information presented and discussing implications for interventionists and their service delivery systems
