Being an elderly, gay, Latino male, for example, represents four potential reference groups operating on the person. The culturally competent social worker must be willing and able to touch all dimensions of human existence without negating any of the others. 20 The Conceptual Dimensions of Multicultural Social Work Practice What Is Multicultural Social Work Practice? In light of the previous analysis, let us define multicultural social work practice (MCSW) as it relates to the provision of social services and the roles of the social work practitioner: Multicultural social work practice can be defined as both a helping role and a process that uses modalities and defines goals consistent with the life experiences and cultural values of clients; recognizes client identities to include individual, group, and universal dimensions; advocates the use of universal and culturespecific strategies and roles in the healing process; and balances the importance of individualism and collectivism in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and problem solving of client and client systems.

As we have already seen, MCSW acknowledges that our existence and identity are composed of individual (uniqueness), group, and universal dimensions. Any form of helping that fails to recognize the totality of these dimensions negates important aspects of a person’s identity (D. W. Sue & Sue, 2003). Principles and Assumptions of Multicultural Social Work Practice 4. 5. 6. 21 Universal and culture-specific strategies. Related to the second point, MCSW believes that different racial/ethnic minority and other sociodemographic groups might respond best to culture-specific strategies of helping.

Third, we have historically neglected the study of identity at the group level for sociopolitical and normative reasons. As we have seen, issues of race, gender, sexual orientation, and disability seem to touch hot buttons in all of us because they bring to light issues of oppression and the unpleasantness of personal biases (Carter, 1995; Helms & Richardson, 1997; D. W. , 1998). If social work hopes to understand the human condition, it cannot neglect any level of identity. Explanations that acknowledge the importance of group influences such as gender, race, culture, sexual orientation, socioeconomic class, and religious affiliation lead to more accurate understanding of human behavior (Devore & Schlesinger, 1999).
