Anti-Discriminatory Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy is a ground-breaking text which identifies the ease with which individuals can be disadvantaged merely on the basis of their gender, race, culture, age, sexuality or ability. Examining these and other areas of discrimination, leading experts highlight how vital it is for counsellors, psychotherapists and others in the helping professions, to be aware of and engage with their own social, political and cultural attitudes, and how they must develop their skills as culturally sensitive, reflective practitioners if counselling is to be truly accessible to all members of society.

Review:

This second edition of Anti-discriminatory counselling practice demands a place on every counsellor′s bookshelf. Through examining discrimination in such areas as sexuality, gender, race and class, and exploring how counsellors can face these challenges in constructive and effective ways, it makes a major contribution to the advancement of counselling practice.

Mick Cooper, Professor of Counselling, University of Strathclyde

This pioneering book is a bold and much needed undertaking. It is timely, highly organized, extremely informative and practical, with many useful suggestions. The authors have done the counselling and psychotherapy profession a great favour by gathering diverse authors to educate and stimulate those of us who are therapists.
