Though important strides have been made in the last three decades in the research efforts on African Americans, there continues to be a lack of significant new understanding about the impact of the African American culture on the therapy process and dynamics. This volume provides an in-depth analysis of the counseling literature pertaining to African American clients. Specifically, the analysis includes a review of the different variables (client, counselor, counseling process, and assessment) that have received the bulk of research attention. This sets the stage for the presentation of a counseling model for African American clients. The authors discuss philosophical premises upon which the model is based and suggest specific counseling strategies and interventions related to the model. Case study material is integrated throughout the chapters, focusing on individual and group approaches. This volume is an important work for counseling professionals as well as for students in social work and counseling programs.

"Finally, a textbook that emphasizes the new Positive Psychology movement! The more I read this text, the more I like it." "-Meredyth G. Fellows, West Chester University of Pennsylvania" "It brings a fresh perspective (postmodern, multiple perspectives, multicultural intentionality-concepts not addressed in my text and other similar texts) to understanding theories of counseling and psychotherapy." "-Claire Sham Choy, California State University, Fresno" "Finally, a textbook that centralizes multicultural-feminist-social justice movements and positive psychology (as well as constructivism and postmodernism) without tacking them on to the end! A terrific book for a master's or advanced undergraduate course in theories or in multicultural counseling." "-Sharon Horne, The University of Memphis" " " "The strength of this text is that it integrates multicultural issues into each chapter and utilizes multicultural examples to explore different theories. This integration is coupled with the specific discussion of multicultural theory as a theory in and of itself. The multidimensional approach to multiculturalism champions the current thinking of our time that celebrates an integrative and infused perspective."

"A must-read book for all mental health professionals wanting to keep up with today's most important clients...practical, concrete, hands-on details from firsthand experts on ethnic populations." --Richard Suinn, PhD, Colorado State University, Past president (1999), American Psychological Association The rich mosaic of racial and ethnic diversity defines our society now more than ever. For students and professional psychologists, this translates into a critical need to address a range of cultural diversity issues, as well as potential biases. Recently, the American Psychological Association (APA) recognized the importance of cultural competence for psychologists through its adoption of its Multicultural Guidelines. Applying those guidelines to real-world practice is both complex and challenging. Only one text brings it all into sharp focus: Strategies for Building Multicultural Competence in Mental Health and Educational Settings. Edited and written by renowned multicultural experts, this informative guide is full of concrete strategies and case examples, all geared toward achieving the goal of culturally competent practice. Chapter by chapter, it uses a variety of practice modalities in various settings to help all mental health professionals increase their familiarity and compliance with the APA Multicultural Guidelines. Beginning with a useful summary of the APA guidelines, Strategies for Building Multicultural Competence in Mental Health and Educational Settings covers the guidelines' relevance to: * Individual and group counseling * Couples and family counseling * Career counseling with people of color * Independent practice settings * Multicultural consultations and organizational change * Academic mental health training settings * Clinical and hospital settings * College counseling center settings * Elementary and secondary school settings This timely reference also considers building multicultural competence around indigenous healing practices; in clinical supervision contexts; and in culturally sensitive research. Taken together, the book is a much-needed blueprint for making culturally informed decisions, explaining how the multicultural initiatives you implement today can he'p shape the field's future.
