Many factors in the world today, such as globalization and a rise in immigration, are increasing the need for mental health practitioners to acquire the ability to interact effectively with people of different cultures. This text will address this need by exploring the history, philosophy, processes, and trends in counseling and psychotherapy in countries from all regions of the globe, offering an enhanced understanding of diverse cultures and multicultural competencies. Each section of the text is devoted to one area of the world (e.g. Africa, South America, the Middle East, etc.) and its major countries where counseling and psychotherapy are undertaken. Chapters cover specific countries and explore such topics as their demographics, counselor education programs, current counseling theories and trends, and significant traditional and indigenous treatment and healing methods. Overall, this text is an invaluable resource for practitioners, showing them how to look beyond their own borders and cultures to enhance their counseling practices.
