"This text provides a modern perspective on the most pressing issues for counseling clients with diverse cultural backgrounds and ethnicities, while simultaneously including the impact of long-standing patterns of discrimination and oppression in American society."

-- Jon Reid, Southern Oklahoma State University

"Becoming a Multiculturally Competent Counselor is a very well written and timely book on a hard subject. Old habits die hard, so a book that attempts to steer professional counseling away from the traditional, ethnocentric approach to a more global approach requires a very palatable way of fostering or facilitating the movement. I believe that this book has accomplished that."

-- Enobong Inyang, Marshall University

"A comprehensive text that prepares the clinician for the 21st-century practice of becoming culturally competent and an advocate for the oppressed."

-- Fred Hall, Mississippi College
It is well researched, detailed and clear in its style, with chapters organised around the standards identified by CARCREP, the US accreditation body for counselling courses. Counselling students are facilitated to develop their own multi-cultural identity through reflective exercises, developmental models and case studies...The main message that has stayed with me from this book is that 'we the counsellors will either be part of the solution to social injustice or part of the problem' (p348)- food for thought for all of us in the counselling profession. -- Frances Lampert, Counselor and Supervisor
