"In our present planetary crisis, communication across cultural lines has become vitally important. This volume on cross-cultural counseling is enormously valuable in contributing to that goal. It is broadly conceived, giving many individual perspectives on counseling with different ethnic groups; the methods available; the research which helps to clarify our understanding; and the status of education and training for cross-cultural work. It will help stretch the counselor's mind and heart. It will help to avoid the cultural encapsulation of the counselor. The editor and the many contributors are to be congratulated for their creative effort in bringing this book together." Carl Rogers, Ph.D., Resident Fellow, Center for Studies of the Person "This is a comprehensive and well-elaborated review of conceptual frameworks for counseling and therapy in cross-cultural problems. Most of the widely spread literature is organized into groups, methodology is presented in an even flow with access to diagnostic considerations, and the variety of racial and cultural parameters encountered in the subject is thus made clear." Readings: A Journal of Reviews and Commentary in Mental Health

Editorial Reviews

"This unique handbook is based on the writings of major authors in the field.... [At] the end of each of their articles is a short but useful list of references on the subject. Where possible, the articles give history, present status, fundamental assumptions, fundamental theories, and future directions. The handbook breaks down into five sections: Counseling and Therapy Perspectives, Counseling Methods, Client Populations, Issues and Research, and Education and Training. Each section begins with an overview of the conceptual framework of the subject at hand. The forty chapters make a worthwhile resource that reviews the five above stated areas on topics dealing with the broad field of cross-cultural counseling. It gives some organization and direction to a field that is still young. Index. Recommended."-Reference Book Review
