Pre- and in-service counselors get a wealth of authoritative suggestions and practical advice for working effectively with a variety of clients from today’s multiculturally diverse world. Through the author’s careful examination of convergence—the intersection of race, ethnicity, gender, and other primary identity constructs within the context of counseling—readers see their roles and responsibilities as agents of transformation, while recognizing the way in which dominant cultural beliefs and values furnish and perpetuate clients’ feelings in both the therapeutic process and within the larger society.
