This volume looks at the subject of teaching diversity. Instead of looking at the boundaries that separate different cultures, the text uses the approach from the inside out. In other words, learning about one's own ingrained assumptions will eventually lead to an appreciation of others' value and beliefs. This primer provides a learning-in-practice model where students, through the use of exercises, strategies and conceptual material, first recognize and develop their own communication styles and then work on how they interact with others.

Review:

"I am excited about this (book). It suggests a new approach to learning about diversity, one that focuses on self (always works well with our students!) and is practical in terms of application. Because we talk a lot about ause of selfa in human services, the development of the individual as a helper is at the core of what we teach and the text will mesh well with our philosophy. What is most exciting to me and what other texts donat do well at all is get right down to the anitty-grittyaaalearning culturally-sensitive skills.a The behavioral focusa].will set this text apart from those now available."
