Professional evaluations provide context for each counseling session

Unscripted counseling sessions show both effective and ineffective multicultural counseling techniques to demystify and humanize the counseling process. Sessions show how multicultural counselor-client relationships can be both damaged and rebuilt in the same session.

Students learn theories by watching real-life sessions

Thirteen chapters include multiple video clips that bring multicultural counseling concepts and theories to life. The counselors and clients discuss real-life, contemporary issues that students can relate to. Many of the counseling sessions also cover CACREP specialty areas such as school counseling; addiction counseling; career counseling; clinical mental health counseling; marriage, couple, and family counseling; and college counseling.

Concepts are continually connected to the real world

Students engage with interactive exercises where concepts build upon each other to enable deeper understanding.

    Features Include

  • Comprehensive Coverage: Explores and covers nearly all major multicultural counseling topics in the profession
  • Streamlined Presentation: Allows students more time to review and analyze more detailed text
  • New Advances and Important Changes: Expanded coverage of internalized racism; cultural humility; microaggression against marginalized groups; social justice/advocacy skills; recent research and thinking on evidence-based practice; and new approaches to work with specific populations
  • Up to Date: Careful consideration of the multicultural guidelines proposed by the American Psychological Association and the draft guidelines for Multicultural and Social Justice Counseling Competencies (MSJCC) (2015) from the American Counseling Association’s Revision Committee
  • Attention to the Emotive Nature of Content: Ensuring that the strong emotive reaction of students to the material does not prevent self-exploration, which is a necessary component of cultural competence in the helping professions
