Continuing the work started in the highly successful original edition, this revised and updated major work explores issues relevant to the culturally different in the United States and cuts across all ethnic/racial minorities. It is divided into three parts covering issues and concepts in cross-cultural counseling, counseling individual populations and critical incidents in cross-cultural counseling. Specifically, the conceptual framework is provided to aid in understanding the minority experience in the U.S., the role counseling has played with respect to larger societal forces, and the practice of cross-cultural counseling in mental health agencies, industries, public schools and correctional settings. Additionally, specific minority groups are given individual treatment to contrast similarities and differences. One notemajor revisions to this edition (approximately 80%) are the result of current changes in the field and the authors' rethinking of earlier models of multicultural counseling.
