CAIRO BOOKS's Description
A thorough and contemporary exploration of issues fundamental to multicultural
Handbook of Multicultural Counseling Competencies draws together an expert
group of contributors who provide a wide range of viewpoints and personal
experiences to explore the identification and development of specific
competencies necessary to work effectively with an increasingly diverse
population. Beginning with a Foreword by Derald Wing Sue, this unique handbook
offers a broad, comprehensive view of multiculturalism that is inclusive and
reflective. The coverage in this important book lies beyond the scope of
traditionally defined multiculturalism, with discussion of historically
overlooked groups that have experienced prejudice and bias because of their
size, social class, age, language, disability, or sexual orientation.
This book provides readers with:
Practical cases and examples to enhance skill development, promote critical
thinking, and increase awareness
A cross-section of diversity characteristics and best practice guidelines
Examination of detailed, developmentally relevant competency categories
Resources and exercises designed for practitioners at various levels of
experience and expertise
A forum for debate, discussion, and growth
Designed to help readers enhance general multicultural compe-tency and their
ability to provide services to the populations specifically described, this
thought-provoking text will prove useful in facilitating ongoing dialogues
about multicultural competence in all its variations.
