Pre- and in-service counselors get a wealth of authoritative suggestions and practical advice for working effectively with a variety of clients from today’s multiculturally diverse world. Through the author’s careful examination of convergence—the intersection of race, ethnicity, gender, and other primary identity constructs within the context of counseling—readers see their roles and responsibilities as agents of transformation, while recognizing the way in which dominant cultural beliefs and values furnish and perpetuate clients’ feelings in both the therapeutic process and within the larger society.

In this insightful and practical resource, pre-service and practicing counselors get a thorough understanding of what counseling approaches work for a diversity of clients under what particular and unique conditions. With the goal of helping students and counselors further their development as multiculturally-competent professionals, author Tracy Robinson-Wood shows how to make the process of transformation a part of a social justice orientation and a lifelong commitment to using the power and privilege of a counselor for good in the world. She shows readers the concept of diversity from a much broader perspective than just race and ethnicity by exploring a broad spectrum of cultural and diversity issues and their impact on the client-counselor relationship.
Through storytellings, the diversities of many of the world’s cultures come alive. And through realistic case studies in every chapter, each emphasizing specific counseling skills, the book helps prepare readers to better appreciate the multiple layers and contexts that both the counselor and the client bring to therapy.
