“This is an excellent resource, written by leaders that provides an in-depth overview of multicultural concepts with a ‘hands-on’ focus.”

Kevin P. Feisthamel
Hiram College

The Handbook of Multicultural Counseling is an impressive compilation of Multicultural Counseling from many aspects and voices. As such, it is invaluable as a reference text–I refer to it often, and I often refer students to it.”

Susan C. Norton
Edinboro University

The Handbook of Multicultural Counseling offers varied perspectives and a comprehensive overview of key issues necessary to helping counselors-in-training become culturally competent in their practices.  The section on life stories of multicultural counseling pioneers is particularly engrossing and sets the stage for students to open up to alternative views of the world particularly as it relates to the counseling field.  I have used a number of other texts, but I am looking forward to implementing this one since it far exceeds the expectations for an introductory text on this topic.”   

Annette F. Nelligan
University of Maine

 “The Handbook of Multicultural Counseling provides a wide and comprehensive overview of concepts and issues that need to be understood by professional counselors.”

J. Jeffries McWhirter
Arizona State University

“This is the most comprehensive synthesis of cutting edge multicultural counseling research available. This is the gold standard and a must read for anyone working in a human services field.”
