For graduate students preparing to become counselors and for new counselors as a resource


An innovative, evidence-based approach to helping graduate students become multiculturally competent counselors


Revised and updated to present the latest references and statistics related to theory, research, and practice with multicultural populations, this text continues to help graduate students become multiculturally competent counselors. Comprehensive, thoughtful, and in-depth, the book takes readers beyond general discussions of race and ethnicity, into the realm of a broader, more complex view of multiculturalism and social advocacy in clients’ and trainees’ lives.


Here scholarship is balanced with a highly interactive approach to give future counselors the empirically based information they need, together with engaging, self-reflective activities, discussion questions, case inserts, practitioner and client perspectives, and study aids. In it readers see opportunities for experiential learning related to cultural diversity considerations and social advocacy issues within clients’ social systems.
