Editorial Reviews


"I am excited about this (book). It suggests a new approach to learning about diversity, one that focuses on self (always works well with our students!) and is practical in terms of application. Because we talk a lot about 'use of self' in human services, the development of the individual as a helper is at the core of what we teach and the text will mesh well with our philosophy. What is most exciting to me and what other texts don't do well at all is get right down to the 'nitty-gritty''learning culturally-sensitive skills.' The behavioral focus'.will set this text apart from those now available."

"The book is important and quite relevant, because it provides an alternative approach to how diversity is being taught. I did find the book quite interesting and very appropriate for today's issues. I like the way it was broken into identification of self and then moving on to interrelationships with others."
