"This edition adds the latest hot button issues in the multicultural world. The authors have skillfully and sensitively added the latest evidence-based knowledge of critical problems that can surface in counseling/therapy, including 'microaggressions,'interethnic relationships, Middle Eastern issues, and immigration/refugee complexities. Everything you ever wanted to know about multicultural counseling is included in this edition. It continues to be the standard for any mental health professional treating persons from racial/ethnic minority populations....It is authoritative, illuminating, and clinically compelling."
—Melba Vasquez, PhD, ABPP, Independent Practice, Austin, Texas

The book touches the reader on multiple levels, bringing in personal stories, pushing one's thinking, and very clearly linking theory, history, policies, contemporary trends, and practice. Absolutely outstanding—don't miss it!"
