An Introduction to Multicultural Counseling

Front Cover
Taylor & Francis, 1999 - Psychology - 259 pages
"Nowhere is there more of a need for an understanding of multiculturalism than in the mental health profession."--BOOK JACKET. "When client and counselor are from different cultural backgrounds, they tend to view things from disparate perspectives. Though a background in multiculturalism is required for program accreditation, most existing texts limit coverage to ethnicity, without the emphasis of broad concepts such as discrimination and acculturation, or coverage of gender, sexual orientation, disability, or aging issues. An Introduction to Multicultural Counseling is a primer designed to teach counseling students how to effectively deal with such discrepancies."--BOOK JACKET. "This book is essential for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students studying human services, psychology, counseling, and ethnic studies. It also serves as a practical guide for providers of continuing education workshops for counselors, psychologists, teachers, and social workers."--BOOK JACKET.
