In counselling and psychotherapy, to be 'outside the sentence' is to be positioned outside the cultural metaphors that inform clinical practice in the West. How do minoritised clients understand their socio-cultural and geo-political histories as parts of therapy? How do psychotherapists and counsellors work with gender, class, race, sexual orientations, disability, religion and age?

This book offers a critical examination of the current practices of counselling and psychotherapy, particularly multicultural counselling. It invites psychotherapists and clients to work 'within the sentence' of an ethical and social justice practice by examining the history, memory and pain of marginalized groups.

Some of the key themes this book explores are:
Constructing the 'other' and otherness
Re(placing) multiculturalism in counselling
Outside race, inside gender: a good enough 'holding environment'
Cultural representations and interpretations of 'psychological distress'
Dual interventions and traditional healers
Research and training in critical multicultural therapy
