A key supplement for courses on multicultural counseling, this book is a practical volume that will help faculty and students see demonstrations of multicultural counseling in practice. The text covers evidence based practices for working with the four major ethnic groups, while weaving in other factors such as gender, disability, sexuality, and more. Each chapter has a case study by an invited expert who also provides commentary and lesson drawing upon each case. The book begins with an overview/framework of the skill building model and applied to each of the racial/ethnic groups. The second chapter focuses on how teaching the course has changed over the past decade and emphasize the importance of multicultural skill building. Chapters 3-7 focus on working with Latino/a, African American, Native, Asian American, and Arab American populations. Each chapter presents a case example of an individual from each group in treatment and will be presented with a standard template across chapters. Each expert first presents an introduction to the case, the theoretical orientation, a full case conceptualization (applying theory to the case), application of skill development model, session analysis and rationale for intervention.
