Integrating a transcultural perspective into the social work curriculum: A descriptive and exploratory studyJournal of Teaching in Social Work (2012)
This paper describes a transcultural perspective, employed by one social work program, as an integrative framework for addressing diversity throughout the curriculum. The transcultural perspective incorporates five interrelated but distinct dimensions: (1) culture (recognizing the importance of culture at all levels of practice); (2) understanding dynamics of power, privilege, and oppression; (3) positionality and self-reflexivity; (4) respectful partnership; and (5) cultural competence (translating principles into culturally responsive practice). Also presented are findings from a study assessing student understanding after delivery of educational modules introducing the transcultural perspective. [ABSTRACT FROM PUBLISHER] .
