Beginning from commonly taught theories in the social sciences, this book examines their relevance to the Asian situation and adds an Asian perspective whenever possible. The book covers topical issues such as the cognitive development of adolescence, the role of women in Asian society,the development of religious faith and approaches that social workers can take when dealing with clients coming from a variety of religious backgrounds. It also covers Asian views of personality, morality, “face” and conformity and discusses the search for identity in the Asian social context as well as examining Asian approaches to parenting and Asian family dynamics.
