Counselling in a Multicultural Society by Stephen Palmer
Book Description'The book aptly describes, explores and hits the core of very complex issues around race, racism, culture, difference, dual identity, stereotypes, immigration and alienation...It is also very thought-provoking, raising questions about one's own ability to work more flexibly in the consulting room with clients of different backgrounds...It is excellent for a directory of resources, useful for training purposes and an enabling "role model" for good practice in counselling in a multicultural society. I enjoyed it...It should be a required handbook on the shelf of every caring professional working within a multicultural environment or setting' - Transformations, The PCSR Journal This book examines the many complex issues surrounding counselling and therapy in a multicultural society. It aims to sensitize readers to the cultural and racial setting in which counselling occurs, and to raise awareness of the specific counselling needs of those from differing backgrounds. The book explores the impact of culture on identity, and of cultural differences on interaction. It looks at how one might take a client's cultural context into consideration, or deal with racism, and provides a sophisticated account of the salient value systems of Western and non-Western cultures. Contributors also challenge the suitability of a client-centred approach for clients from non-Western backgrounds, and explore the possibilities for transcultural, culture-centred and multimodal models of counselling in the West.
