Second Edition


August 1999 | 160 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

`This us a useful introductory book, which is particularly suitable for those in training. It is well structured and easy to read and includes excerpts from therapeutic exchanges to illustrate the points made' - The Journal of Critical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy

`A useful resource for counsellors wishing to improve their efforts at transcultural counselling' - New Therapist

The Second Edition of this clear and practical guide is designed to help counsellors and professional helpers give effective, sensitive and appropriate support to clients from cultures other than their own.

Patricia d'Ardenne and Aruna Mahtani illustrate the process of transcultural counselling using the contrasting case studies of four different clients, and highlight the impact of cultural issues at individual, community and global levels. Counsellors are encouraged to recognize the importance of life experiences for their work, and to think about ways of using their own skills and resources more flexibly in response to different cultural needs.

`A useful resource for counsellors wishing to improve their efforts at transcultural counselling' - New Therapist

`I found I enjoyed this edition because of the political analysis that the authors pose, and the understanding that racism and particularly institutional racism, do still occur and "that change will only happen if we all act more proactively....training bilingual counsellors and promoting anti-racism in the workplace. In the wider world, counsellors have a responsibility to advocate best practices for diverse communities"....it is a treasure trove for anyone interested in understanding the complex issues or working with and across cultures. The dynamics, patterns and interactions Roger Herring describes are relevant to working with diverse ethnic groups in this country' -RACE
