“The author writes in a clear voice for students and families who are marginalized by their differences from the mainstream, offering practical strategies for the practitioner to use with both individuals and systems. A copy of this should be on every school counselor’s bookshelf.”
“The author’s compelling personal story and journey, which serves as a connecting narrative while also serving as a means of explicating specific points in the text, was engaging and resulted in a single-sitting, straight-through reading of the book.”
"This is an extremely thoughtful, well-referenced book that encourages counselors and educators conduct their own research and educate themselves with clients’ issues. All of us (hopefully) experience transformation in varying degrees on professional and personal levels. I feel very strongly that we must all take the responsibility to open ourselves to be transformed. Kim’s work has challenged and inspired me to continue the next steps in my own professional/personal (and thus, spiritual) evolution."
Broad based on issues to do with diversity - not overly focused just on ethnicity (which often in other texts is US centric and not representative of Canadian communities). This book encompasses ability, gender/sexual orientation, religion as well as racial considerations. Accessible and purposeful in its approach.
