Product Overview

This book brings a fresh perspective to family and social ties which promote resiliency in Hawaiian and Native American, Asian American and Latino // Hispanic American cultures.

The contributors give extensive examples of the ceaseless war between cultures where too often holistic and socially cohesive practices have been torn apart by growing westernization and materialism.

Editors Note Resiliency in Native American and Immigrant Families brings a fresh and welcome perspective to the study of American minority families. The editors seek to identify and appreciate the strengths and capabilities of families from Hawaiian, Native American, Asian American, and Latino/Hispanic American cultures in an effort to share knowledge that will result in ethnically and culturally sensitive family services and treatment programs. Part I addresses theoretical issues related to multiple ethnic groups. Part II focuses on issues of resiliency in a range of life situations facing families of Native American descent. Part III is about the resilient factors specific to racial and ethnic immigrant families, including Asian Americans and Latino/Hispanic Americans. The authors these chapters explore intergenerational social support and transmission of cultural identity among Asian Americans as well as the effect of cultural beliefs and values on attitudes toward work roles and educational attainment. Other chapters apply a resiliency perspective to discussions of caregiving, coping with hardship and discrimination, and the availability of community and social support to Latino/Hispanic families. Social workers, clinical practitioners, and scholars in ethnic studies, family studies, sociology, counseling, and psychology will find this material valuable.
