This book was designed as a text for graduate-level multicultural counseling courses. The content was structured to meet the accreditation standards of the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP). However, the content of the book is appropriate for all trainees and practitioners in the helping professions. In most chapters, case examples are provided to illustrate application of models and concepts to work with clients and students. Class and small-group experiential activities are included. The goal of the text is to provide knowledge and experience for developing multicultural competence in counselor-trainees, counselors, and others in the helping professions. (Imprint: Nova)
