Overview

The book is written from a practitioner perspective, and is intended predominantly for practising counsellors and therapists, counselling supervisors and trainers.

With an emphasis on white racial identity issues, the book is particularly relevant for white readers, however it may also enable readers from other racial groups to increase their understanding of racial development.
