Format: Paperback
This book embodies what multicultural counseling is all about, the state of the art. Not only are the most recent empirical findings and directions presented, but we are also treated to the real life narratives of prominent multicultural counselors (in particular I really enjoyed Janet Helms and her sense of humor). In my opinion this is the perfect melding of head and heart/soul and represents both science and art. My gratitude goes out to the 85 people who have put this important work together. This book is a must have.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By W Boudville HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 10, 2007
Format: Paperback
The book offers a global perspective on multiculturalism. Showing a complex interplay of how individuals construct their identities from multiple sources. This is reinforced by a varied choice of authors who have contributed to this book.

Several authors speak on their personal experiences, offering these as examples of diversity. One example is Nadya Fouad. She said that she could "pass" for white. But she also identifies strongly with her mother's Brazilian culture, and calls herself hispanic. But she also has an Arab surname. Another example was Daya Sandhu. His parents were Sikhs from Pakistan. Who had to flee to India due to discrimination from Muslims.

Such examples of contributors enrich the book, by letting the reader develop an awareness of and a sensitivity to the subtleties of human backgrounds.

I used this textbook for a class and really liked it. The chapters are short but interesting and they cover a wide variety of topics. A "must" for any counseling class!

This is a good book for those studying multicultural issues today. I don't know that I was able to glean as much information as I have gotten from other class materials and books though. It's easy to read, but to me it was lacking information that could be very useful for counselors and for studying different ethnic groups.

The book was received within 6 days of ordering. The description was a little bit vague. Not sure whether would order from them again or not.
