Learning to Serve American Indians: Social Work Students' Reflections on Their Journeys Toward Cultural and Structural Responsiveness

The intention of this secondary data analysis is to discover themes related to the process of learning about the American Indian experience in order to generate increased knowledge about the delivery of content and process of teaching social work students to provide effective and culturally responsive social work services to this group.

This study seeks to uncover themes within thoughts and experiences of both bachelor- and master-level social work students as they were exposed to new classroom learning about American Indian history, the policies that have affected and continue to affect individuals, families, communities, and tribes, and issues related to providing social work services to this population.
