Description

For courses in multicultural counseling or any human services course that directs attention to serving diverse clients. Written to explore the lives and potential counseling problems of African American, Hispanic American, Asian American, European American, and Native American populations, this text considers the powerful influences of a client's developmental stage and cultural background. It maintains that integrating multicultural and lifespan considerations are crucial to counseling effectiveness. The authors also advocate an understanding of individual differences-cultural, ethnic, racial, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic, and individual-in order for counselors to use existing strategies to their best advantage. Intervening with clients from counseling specific groups during various lifespan stages, and professional issues/future directions of the multicultural counseling field are also covered.show more
