"I strongly believe in incorporating diversity in the classroom however possible and I believe this textbook will provide a strong opportunity to do this."
Glendale Community College
Although this text provided rich cases and relevant information, the University requested that I use a text that was more theoretical and developmentally structured. Thus, though I did not adopt this as my main text, I used this book as an "optional" supplementary text for students interested in going beyond the basics and for those interested in multicultural issues.

Family Life Education With Diverse Populations
Editors Sharon M. Ballard and Alan C. Taylor bridge the gap between research and practice by examining and presenting key strategies for working with diverse populations, including those based on race and ethnicity, family structure, geographic location, and context. By defining 11 diverse groups and presenting their strengths and unique cultural characteristics, the editors present an evidence-based practice approach with each chapter, prescribing the best practices for working with these diverse groups in regard to general family life education (FLE) needs, educator characteristics, ethical considerations, marketing and recruitment, modes of learning, and environmental considerations. This book is essential for students who are preparing to work with families, as well as professionals engaging in FLE activities with diverse populations.
