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.
