Comprehensive, thoughtful, and in-depth, Developing Multicultural Counseling Competence goes beyond general discussions of race and ethnicity to include discourse on a broader, more complex view of multiculturalism in the lives of clients and trainees. Both scholarly and highly interactive, this new text strives to present trainees with empirically based information about multicultural counseling and social advocacy paired with engaging, self-reflective activities; discussion questions; case inserts; and study aids.

Key features

  • Addresses the 2009 CACREP (Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs) Standards related to the social and cultural diversity core area.
  • Includes Case Studies depicting real examples of multicultural counseling situations, illustrating the connection between research and practice.
  • Provides opportunities for reflection, stimulating thought about personal beliefs and biases.
  • Increases trainee awareness of the role of cultural privilege and oppression in personal and client development, presenting a comprehensive section on social advocacy issues that serve to frame client and trainee experiences.

“This text would be an excellent one to use with graduate students exploring multicultural counseling issues. It has breadth and depth in addressing pertinent issues in students becoming multiculturally competent counselors… Developing Multicultural Counseling Competence is one of the best proposed manuscripts I have read or reviewed.”

--Tony Cawthon, Clemson University
