Overview

While there are numerous resources for practitioners on the subject, the ambiguity remains of what actually constitutes effective multicultural counseling and psychotherapy and how it should be incorporated into their sessions. This book addresses the question of how to apply current theories and research with a unique “start-to-finish” approach, examining the role culture plays in each stage of the therapeutic process,
from before the clinical intake to termination. Each chapter is devoted to one of these stages and provides practical strategies, techniques, examples, and case studies. The reader will find new ways to consider the influence of culture and expand their own knowledge and skills as a practitioner.
