As a mixed-race (Scottish/English and Cherokee), two-spirited (gay) man, I have been waiting for a book that speaks to my experience in the world. Drs. Henriksen and Paladino have given counselors not only a book that we need, but one that is of critical importance in a world increasingly composed of multiple heritage individuals whose overlapping and intermeshed cultures and identities cry out for this new view of these societal realities. --Mark Pope, EdD, University of Missouri Saint Louis
This informative and all-inclusive text underscores the complex and comprehensive nature of counseling multiple heritage individuals, couples, and families. For the novice as well as the seasoned practitioner, this book offers an opportunity to enhance self-awareness, impact practices, and advocate for those without a voice. --Marie A. Wakefield, ACA President, 2006 2007
Henriksen, Paladino, and their associates have provided us with a timely and invaluable resource to rectify our lack of attention to and understanding of the unique issues facing multiple heritage clients. This is a thorough and thoughtful book and I recommend it highly. --Richard E. Watts, PhD, SamHouston State University
