Beschreibung:

Applying the social control paradigm to people of color, this text uses a racism-centered perspective of social welfare policy analysis to examine how such policies have regulated the lives of people of color and then employs a strengths-based approach to describe how they have refused to go along with the oppressive features of these policies. It illuminates the need for culturally competent social welfare policy practitioners, illustrating how racism continues to be at the center of many contemporary social problems such as issues of employment, public and bilingual education, housing and residential patterns, citizens' rights, and affirmative action-and of the social welfare policies used to address these issues.This book is an ideal core or supplementary text for Social Policy courses in departments of social work or human services. It is also a must-read for social welfare policy advocates and analysts and for anyone interested in how the themes of social welfare policy regulation and resistance are relevant to people of color.

This book examines the conceptual, historical and practical implications that various social policies in the US have had on ethnic minorities (defined broadly as African Americans, Native Americans, Latinos and Asian Americans). More importantly, it shows how these groups have responded to and resisted these policies from a strengths-based approach, rather than presenting them as passive victims as many other current texts do.
