Editorial Reviews

Review

"Taking an action-oriented approach, [Ridley] challenges counselors 'to examine the relationship between their behavior toward minority groups and the consequences of that behavior'... Many of his case study vignettes are helpful." (Patricia M. Berliner PsycCRITIQUES 2005-07-20)

"This book is both powerful and sobering.  It would serve as an excellent textbook for multicultural counseling classes.  It could also be a resource for counselors who are critically examining their therapeutic work with minority clients or for institutions evaluating the services provided to these clients.  Numerous examples throughout the book illustrate Ridley's points and help the text to come alive.  This book and its message will be needed as long as minority clients have negative experiences in counseling due to counselors' unintentional racism." (Kimberly Wagner Counseling Today 2005-09-30) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Ridley does an excellent job of opening up issues regarding cultural competency in the mental health services professions. However, while the examples given do illustrate the problems as they currently exist, I found several of the "how to" examples of interaction rather condescending. Still, overall, the book is a great entry into just how and why the mental health field has not served our culturally-diverse populations in the past and how to better serve them in the future.

Stupid book that pretends to promote tolerance while actually promoting bigotry. Save your money. It's quite sad when you think about it.
