This book is a supplement for courses on Marriage and Family Therapy as well as courses in Multicultural Counseling. Because Marriage and Family therapists tend to be white and middle class, the authors have developed the volume to help teachers integrate a multicultural perspective into their courses. The book covers relevant theory, but more importantly focuses on practice implications. It will contain excercises throughout to facilitate teaching of the material and it will cover counseling from a variety of perspectives (religious, ethnic, white privelige).
