Culturally Responsive Social Work Practice in Uganda: A review of selected innovative and indigenous models

Culturally responsive practice is often influenced by the extent to which social work practitioners apply indigenous and innovative philosophies, methods, approaches, and models. There is consensus among social work scholars regarding the need for the social work profession to develop and adopt models and approaches that promote culturally relevant social work practice. Authors show how the social work profession in Uganda is repositioning itself to become culturally responsive and relevant in practice by sharing examples of home-grown indigenous and innovative models of helping that can positively influence social work education and practice.
