about this item
The Convergence of Race, Ethnicity and Gender: Multiple Identities in Counseling, 5th Edition, offers an expanded view of race and culture beyond the individual aspects of identity (race, culture and ethnicity) to include and examine how intersections among race, culture, gender, sexuality, disability and more all interact with helping clients from diverse backgrounds. In this insightful and practical resource, pre-service and practicing counselors get a thorough understanding of what counseling approaches work for a diversity of clients under what particular and unique conditions. Tracy Robinson-Wood shows how to make the process of transformation a part of a social justice orientation and a lifelong commitment to using the power and privilege of a counselor for good in the world. She shows readers the concept of diversity from a much broader perspective than just race and ethnicity by exploring a broad spectrum of cultural and diversity issues and their impact on the client-counselor relationship.
Through storytelling, the diversities of many of the world’s cultures come alive. And through realistic case studies in every chapter, each emphasizing specific counseling skills, the book helps prepare readers to better appreciate the multiple layers and contexts that both the counselor and the client bring to therapy.
