In their book, DeLucia-Waack and Donigian show readers how to lead multicultural groups more effectively. They include the insights of eleven group leaders whose cultural representations reflect unique families of origin, regions, migration, and acculturation experiences. These leaders' insights illustrate the ways in which persons of various cultural backgrounds may interpret events that occur in the groups in which they have been members or leaders. With this background, readers can learn to appreciate the uniqueness and power of their clients' stories, and they can become more of the ways in which their own cultural and ethnic heritage may influence the way they lead multicultural groups.
