About the book:

Many of the problems of the world find their expression in the microcosm of the counseling profession. Counselors must be able to look beyond the current field of cross-cultural and multicultural counseling and develop skills and knowledge relevant to international interaction of multiple languages, races, ethnicities, and lifestyles. This book provides insight into counselor education programs designed for the 21st century and includes a broad introduction to a variety of cultural terms and their implications for counseling. It provides techniques and paradigms recommended for counseling individuals from diverse cultural backgrounds, and it shows a historical evolution of transcultural counseling and its significance in a changing world.
