This timely book will help therapists and counselors successfully integrate the American Psychological Association’s Multicultural Guidelines into their clinical practice. Well-known practitioners and scholars in multicultural counseling use critical incidents and case vignettes in their chapters to show how the APA Guidelines can be applied to specific historically marginalized populations. They also explore multicultural characteristics that cut across diverse populations, using real-life situations to explore issues of gender, sexual orientation, social class, religion, and disability. This all-inclusive user’s guide is a must for educators and practitioners in the mental health field.
