Multiracial Social Work

Satisfactory Essays

As I begin working with people cross culturally, there are a few ideas in this article that I want to remember. The article points out that it is important for us to build connections to our client’s racial and ethnic origins; however, it is equally important that we connect these individuals with other multiracial individuals and family systems. When working with multiracial clients, it is important that we let the client construct his or her own label. As I begin working with people cross-culturally, I can do this skill by asking open-ended questions and allowing the client to construct his or her own identity. This article had some excellent ideas about what skills social workers can use, when working with people cross culturally.
