Abstract:

This volume helps students build a general understanding of what cultural diversity is and why it is important. The text also helps students to better understand their own prejudices so that they can be more effective counselors when working with clients of different cultures. It focuses on effective methods of providing cross-cultural services, the process of cross-cultural service delivery, and cultural information on specific client populations. The author covers concepts such as racial microaggressions, therapeutic interviews with individuals from collective family systems, enforcing professional standards, and culturally sensitive treatment of children. This work also provides students with hands-on clinical suggestions and cautions through interviews with professionals from different ethnic backgrounds.
