Helping professionals must possess cultural awareness if they are to provide the best possible care. In this expanded new edition, the authors uniquely present factors common to diverse ethnic and cultural populations that are useful in developing cross-cultural competence. Building on the existential concepts of Viktor Frankl, the text provides a framework for helping families and individuals discover meaning and meaning opportunities in daily living.
