For practitioners and students seeking to deepen cultural sensitivity in clinical practice, this book examines the ethnic diversity of clients. It reveals the pervasive influence of race, ethnicity and power on the practitioner's own identity and interactions with others - clients, peers, subordinates and superiors. The author emphasizes the need for cross-cultural sensitivity amongst practitioners and shows how the power/lack of power, inherent in roles of clinician and client, can effect clinical processes and outcome. Drawing on examples from her clinical practice and the numerous cultural sensitivity training workshops she has conducted at universities, health facilities and professional meetings world-wide, the author helps individual practitioners to a better understanding of their own values and attitudes in daily clinical practice.
