“Case Studies in Multicultural Counseling and Therapy is a magnificent resource that will help create a greater bridge of understanding between the academic, research, and applied domains of the mental health professions.”
—From the foreword by Thomas A. Parham, PhD, Vice Chancellor, Student Affairs, University of California, Irvine, Distinguished Psychologist, Association of Black Psychologists
"Translating theory into practice is a challenge for every school of clinical orientation. This casebook has succeeded by focusing upon elements of process in multicultural counseling and therapy to give us a rich resource of conceptual and practical aids to assist the teacher, trainee, and practitioner in making a stepwise transition from cultural knowledge to practice competencies."
—Anderson J. Franklin, Ph.D., Honorable David S. Nelson Professor of Psychology and Education, Boston College Lynch School of Education
"Anchored in our latest knowledge and research regarding cross-cultural counseling and spanning the whole spectrum of diversity, this collection of multicultural case studies serves as a wonderful companion to Sue and Sue’s Counseling the Culturally Diverse and fills a gap for rich and contextualized cases illustrating the complex tapestry of our clients’ lives."
—Frederick T.L. Leong, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry; Director of the Consortium for Multicultural Psychology Research
"Case Studies in Multicultural Counseling and Therapy offers a rich narrative of therapeutic engagement with diverse clients highlighting the complexities of intersecting dimensions of culture. Such emotionally-gripping cases facilitate a soul penetrating capacity for expanding cultural schema and increasing cultural empathy among mental health professionals and trainees."
—Michael Mobley, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Salem State University
"Having taught Multicultural Counseling for more than 10 years, Derald Wing Sue, Miguel Gallardo, and Helen Neville have finally answered students’ most oft-repeated question, “How do I apply this knowledge to my clinical practice?” Based on real life cases, contributors offer a practical guide for students and instructors alike who are committed to enhancing multicultural competence. This is a must-have resource for every current and future mental health professional!"
