This latest edition offers a contemporary expansion of the definition of multicultural counseling that pushes the boundaries of the field and allows for a more inclusive and meaningful way of looking at and treating diverse populations. Noted experts Derald Wing Sue and David Sue have updated the book to include new developments in research, theory, and practice. Major additions include: a more expansive definition of multiculturalism; the most recent statistics on the changing complexion of society; and implications for counseling and clinical practice that these changes have precipitated, which are forcing clinicians to redefine their roles and reeducate themselves on how to tend to these varied populations. Completely updated, Counseling the Culturally Diverse includes: New chapters on counseling biracial/multiracial populations, women, gays/lesbians, the physically challenged, the elderly, and monocultural organizations A new section in every chapter covering "Implications for Clinical Practice" Updated chapters on counseling African Americans, Asian Americans, Latino/Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans New clinical case studies and real-life examples illustrating the concepts of multicultural counseling and therapy in action Combining a sound conceptual framework for multicultural counseling with proven therapeutic methods for specific populations, Counseling the Culturally Diverse remains the best source of real-world counseling preparation for students and the most enlightened and influential guide for all mental health professionals.Read Less

Should be a counselling text
Really helpful content in terms of counselling people from ethinically or sociologically diverse backgrounds and world-views. Caucasian counsellors need to read it.
I have incorporated the book into theological college as a counselling text. I wish it had content on (minority) Asian, African, Islander and Aboriginal peoples.

Being a middle-class white, this book has opened my eyes to what it's like to live in this country as a minority. Things that never crossed my mind before, and things that have greatly humbled me and given me a new respect for all minorities. A call to action for all.

Counselor Know Thy Self
Good reading for self analysis of your own biases, prejudices, and conditioned responses toward other cultures. Runs the gamut of cultures from race, ethnic, sex, age, disabled, etc. to the white culture. Good work by the Sues.
