This text offers a comprehensive perspective on human diversity. It addresses content regarding possible cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and social effects of stereotypes as well as the need for conscious change while honoring human complexities. A "Framework for Human Diversity and Transcendence" is introduced as a set of principles for approaching clients' experiences as contextual and multidimensional. Guadalupe and Lum present this framework in the first four chapters, following up with several chapters about practice with different population groups from well-known contributors across the helping professions disciplines.
