This book expands the traditional definition of multicultural counseling from the usual two categories of race and ethnicity to six categories that include: race, ethnicity, gender,religion/spirituality,class, and sexual orientation. Although market leaders are starting to incorporate these categories, this will be the first to account for them all from the onset. Cutting-edge and responsible presentations for each cultural area are written by prominent scholars with the relevant socio-cultural background, with an entire chapter dedicated to social class. Using a constructivist perspective, the book includes additional chapters that will contextualize this material with respect to broad issues of culture, power, social justice, and the development of empathy despite difference, etc. No other book in the market covers multicultural counseling with this inclusiveness.
