9780131186101: The Convergence of Race, Ethnicity, and Gender: Multiple Identities in Counseling

For courses in Multicultural Counseling and Cross-Cultural Psychology.

This text presents diversity from a much broader perspective than just race and ethnicity, exploring a broad spectrum of cultural and diversity issues and their impact upon the client-counselor relationship. The author, herself an African-American, examines the dominant cultural beliefs and values in the United States, and discusses how their nearly wholesale acceptance as "normal" and "better" can perpetuate feelings of inadequacy, shame, confusion, and distrust on both sides of the counseling "couch." Embracing feminist and diversity theories, methods, and techniques, while injecting humor and fascinating stories, she has created a genuinely insightful and thoroughly practical volume.

Review:

Praise for The Convergence of Race, Ethnicity, and Gender:

 

“This book gives my students the foundational material to engage them in classroom work. It covers a broad overview of multicultural concepts and includes issues of gender, class, sexual orientation, and ability.  These are key areas overlooked by most multicultural counseling resources and essential to address CACREP standards.  Since adding this book [to my course] my students consistently mention how they enjoy this text.”

          Marty Jencius, Kent State University 

 

“The case studies make the text rich and effectively illustrate the various concepts, populations, and techniques.”

          Jill C. Jurgens, Old Dominion University

 

“I appreciate the social constructivist point of view, as well as the general models such as dominant versus non-dominant, Arredondo’s model, and the developmental models.”

          Lisa Hawley, Oakland University
