Multicultural aspects of psychological services is currently one of the hottest topics in the mental health profession. Counseling American Minorities provides exactly the kind of information that students in training,as well as practitioners,need in order to provide culturally sensitive services. The book provides information about the history and experiences of each of the four ethnic groups (African Americans,American Indians,Asian Americans,and Hispanic Americans),and examines how psychological service providers might better provide mental health services to members of each group. For chapters related to each of these four ethnic groups,people who have first-hand personal and professional exposure to the experiences and needs of members of each group. At the conclusion of each section are cases and questions that can be used to stimulate class discussion about providing psychological services to clients from that group and role-playing exercises. The companion book,Counseling Diverse Populations,can be used in conjunction with this text for classes that cover sensitivity to non-ethnic as well as ethnic minorities.
