Overview

An essential resource for those interested in multicultural issues, this dictionary presents common terms used in multicultural counseling and research. The terms are not only denotatively defined, but connotations are also included, as well as historical information and important writings about the terms. The dictionary is thus not only a straightforward compendium of definitions, but also a resource for further investigation.

This is intended to be a resource for those interested in the area of multiculturalism. Important publications investigating and/or explicating these terms are also discussed and referenced. Moreover, authors define these terms with a point of view; many terms are defined in a manner that connects them with perspectives commonly expressed by scholars and practitioners in the field. Thus, connotations are included as well as denotations of the terms.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A reference to words, terms, concepts, and theories that are typically used in multicultural counseling. The entries include definitions, information about origins and usage, and references for learning more about the terms and the people responsible for their development. The words were gleaned from journal articles, book chapters, monographs, conference proceedings, and books then circulated among a small core group of psychologists, who added terms they thought were too important to leave out.
