Overview

Written to explore the lives and potential counseling problems of African American, Hispanic American, Asian American, European American, and Native American populations, this book considers the powerful influences of a client's developmental stage and cultural background.

Includes coverage on intervening with clients from counseling specific groups during various lifespan stages, and professional issues/future directions of the multicultural counseling field. It provides readers with an awareness of gender issues, how counseling issues differ for various age groups as well as providing current information related to counseling people with disabilities. For professionals in the field of counseling.
