The Sixth Edition of Counseling Across Cultures contains various perspectives on counseling individuals from a substantial number of diverse cultural contexts. The contributors examine the cultural context of accurate assessment and appropriate interventions in counseling, highlighting work with groups including African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, refugees, and international students. In addressing these wide-ranging issues, this volume articulates the positive contributions that can be realized when multicultural awareness is incorporated into the training of counselors.
New to the Sixth Edition
Addresses current topics from many new authors: Issues that have emerged since the previous edition are discussed from the perspective of some new contributors.
Divides topics into five parts: This edition increases the number of topics while streamlining chapter lengths to fit with academic class assignments.
Emphasizes global issues: More counselors are likely to work outside of the United States and Canada and modes of interventions developed beyond North America are increasingly relevant in the domestic context.
Endorses research from earlier editions: Although this edition introduces a great many new topics and approaches, it also reaffirms the relevance of major contributions from previous editions. Accompanying Web site!
A companion Web site includes discussion questions, multiple choice test items, simulations, classroom activities, additional readings, information to supplement each chapter, as well as other teaching/learning resources.
This is an excellent text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses on Multicultural Counseling in the departments of counseling, psychology, social work, and human services. It is also a valuable resource for any professional in the mental health field who works with a diverse client population.
