For pre- and in-service counselors

For courses in Multicultural Counseling

With the goal of helping students and counselors further their development as multiculturally-competent professionals, author Tracy Robinson-Wood shows how to make the process of transformation a part of a social justice orientation and a lifelong commitment to using the power and privilege of a counselor for good in the world. Through storytellings and case studies, the book helps prepare readers to better appreciate the multiple layers and contexts that both the counselor and the client bring to therapy.

Here readers see diversity from a much broader perspective than just race and ethnicity as the author, herself an African American, explores a broad spectrum of cultural and diversity issues and their impact on the client-counselor relationship. She examines the dominant cultural beliefs and values in the United States and discusses how their nearly wholesale acceptance as "normal" and "better" can perpetuate feelings of inadequacy, shame, confusion, and distrust on both sides of the counseling "couch." Embracing feminist and diversity theories, methods, and techniques, while injecting humor and fascinating stories, Robinson-Wood has created an insightful, practical resource.
