Cultural Diversity and Social Skills Instruction: Understanding Ethnic and Gender Differences

Finally, a book that shows how to teach social skills from a culturally sensitive perspective. This unique manual provides valuable information and insights for working with students from the four largest minority groups — Hispanic American, African American, Native American, and Asian American. The authors differentiate between skill deficits that need to be changed and cultural differences that should be respected in their current form or altered according to specific situations. The book also addresses differences in social skills instruction for male and female students.
