520 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Culturally Alert Counseling: A Comprehensive Introduction, Third Edition, is a readable introduction to the cultural dimensions of counseling and psychotherapy. Garrett McAuliffe along with national leaders in each topic provide an accessible, yet thorough, presentation of culturally alert counseling. This book broadens the discussion of culture from ethnicity and race to include social class, religion, gender, and sexual orientation. Of particular note, in the area of ethnicity, all five of the major U.S. pan-ethnic groupings are presented, as well as Middle Eastern and South Asian people. The Third Edition is also inclusive of all people, including both those in dominant and non-dominant cultural groups. Ultimately, readers will leave informed, moved, and changed by the encounters with culture that lie in these pages. They will also be ready to begin practice equipped with both a vision of the work and practical skills for implementing it.
