Title Cultural competency in social work scholarship and research on latinos in the united states: a content analysis of peer-reviewed social work journals
Date 2016
Description In the mid-1990s, following years of dramatic growth in many ethnic minority populations in the United States-particularly in the Latino population-many helping professions were compelled to develop and implement culturally competent policies, practices, and standards to better meet the unique needs of the increasingly diverse population. Cultural competency standards and guidelines became an integral part of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) Code of Ethics and a key component in the accreditation standards required by the Council on Social Work Education (CSWE). Social work literature is replete with demands for direct practice social workers who are working with Latino individuals, families and communities to increase their level of cultural competency, yet the literature calling for social work researchers and scholars working with Latinos to account for and demonstrate cultural competency during scholarly inquiry is limited and relatively unexplored.
