About this product
- DescriptionFor many students, the word culture is synymous with race and ethnicity. Yet, a large majority of students who go into counsellor education programs are Caucasian. By its very premise, multicultural therapy leaves out Caucasian individuals, leaving many to believe they have ' culture' and feeling disconnected from culture, multiculturalism and social justice. Culture, as it is beginning to be defined, can be seen t as a particular race or ethnicity, rather, as the intersections of multiple identities. Thus, everyone, matter what their race or ethnicity, has a culture. This book is the first to deal with culture more broadly and attempt to help students examine their own culture. This allows Caucasian trainees to embrace culture and have a stronger connection to multiculturalism without feeling alienated from the discussion.
