Multicultural and feminist perspectives are characterized by a variety of similarities, and the integration of multicultural and feminist perspectives in counseling psychology has been a key aim of those in these fields for decades. However, the effective implementation this approach often hasbeen proven challenging and elusive, with difficulties defining the complexity of feminist and multicultural factors in inclusive and meaningful ways.Rising to the challenging of integrating multicultural and feminist perspectives, this book features the accumulated knowledge of approximately 40 years of scholarship that flows out of feminist and multicultural efforts within counseling psychology. It brings a feminist multicultural perspective tocore domains within counseling psychology such as ethical frameworks, lifespan development, identify formation and change, growth-oriented and ecological assessment, and career theory and practice. Emphasis is placed on the intersections among social identities related to gender, ethnicity/race, sexual orientation, social class and socioeconomic status, religion, disability, and nationality. Chapters provide insights and perspectives about specific groups of women include African Americanwomen, Latinas, women with disabilities, women in poverty, women who have experienced trauma, and American Muslim women. Also featured are a range of additional multicultural feminist psychological practices such as feminist multicultural mentoring, teaching, training, and social activism.Affectively blending multicultural and feminist approaches, the theme of working toward social justice for all people permeates all chapters of this handbook.
