Abstract (from the preface) This volume uses the term culture in a broad sense. By doing this, it is possible to look at the treatment needs of certain groups of people who, in the aggregate, are highly represented in public mental health systems; namely, ethnic minorities of color, women, and the homeless. The book aims to provide a useful conceptual framework as well as reviewing current research, presenting case vignettes, and including several brief descriptions of innovative programs. Contributors, by design, represent researchers, program planners, and practitioners in the hope that the resultant product will be a collective description of the state-of-the-art practice of culturally competent clinical case management with public mental health clients. The book is roughly organized into sections reflecting conceptual models, research findings, clinical experiences, and program descriptions. /// It is designed to be of use to graduate and advanced undergraduate social work students preparing to work in the mental health field.
