Offering a balance of clinical and theoretical information, Jerry Diller's practical book focuses on effective methods of providing cross-cultural services. The book covers the general principles of cultural diversity, the process of cross-cultural service delivery, and cultural information on specific client populations. Throughout, Diller builds a general understanding of what cultural diversity is and why it is important, and he also helps students to better understand their own prejudices so that they can be more effective counselors when working with clients of cultures different than their own.

Jerry V. Diller has been teaching for over 30 years and has taught at all levels of higher education. He is currently on the faculty at The Wright Institute in Berkeley, California, where he teaches courses in clinical psychology, cultural diversity, and cross-cultural services delivery. He has also taught at the University of Oregon and at Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon, where he was awarded the Innovation of the Year Award for teaching. He has worked with clients from a variety of different ethnic groups in private practice and public mental health settings and is the author of two books on ethnic identity as well as CULTURAL COMPETENCE: A PRIMER FOR EDUCATORS (Brooks/Cole, Cengage Learning).
