This book provides a holistic study of the physical and mental health conditions that predominate among people of color. By presenting a thorough review of Third World cultural values, beliefs, and behaviors centering on health care, Henderson lays a firm foundation for understanding traditional n-Western cultures. Since immigrants, women, and people of color will be 85% of the net growth in the work force by the year 2000, human services professionals who assist people of color in state, county, and municipal agencies, nprofit organizations, hospitals, and nursing homes will be challenged to provide assistance to an increasing number of culturally diverse clients.
