Abstract Surveys the literature in 4 major social work journals on direct practice with Asian American (AA) & Pacific Islander (PI) populations, who constitute the fastest-growing minority group in the US. Findings highlight gaps in 6 areas: (1) distinguishing between AAs & PIs, (2) separating AAs into different ethnic groups, (3) distinguishing between immigrants & refugees, (4) considering lifespan developmental differences in age, (5) focusing more on gender differences in the various ethnic groups, & (6) strengthening the practice focus on communities. 52 References.
