In this book, designed to increase mental health professionals' global literacy, authors from 33 countries demonstrate multicultural skills and competencies through case studies that illustrate approaches to counseling and psychotherapy in their countries. Following an introductory section on the use of case studies, chapters focus on a cross section of countries in Africa; Australia and Asia; Central, North, and South America; Europe; and the Middle East. Each case describes the client and his or her presenting concerns and includes a culture-sensitive assessment and treatment plan, an analysis and critical reflection of the case, and questions for discussion. The final chapter of the text presents a comparative analysis of the cases.

Reviews and Endorsements:

"Although the literature on how mental health practitioners worldwide assist their clients has expanded dramatically in the past few years, very few publications have described actual counselor-client case studies. This book addresses this gap, offering a detailed account of how clinicians from around the world conceptualize their cases and employ a host of diverse counseling strategies. Through reading this book, practitioners, researchers, and trainers in every setting will acquire new insight and skills in the universal and unique aspects of the counseling process."

"This is a wonderful collection of engaging therapeutic stories that illustrate the complexities of counseling within different cultural contexts. It is an excellent stimulus to broaden both students' and scholars' conceptualization of counseling and psychotherapy."

-Puncky Paul Heppner, PhD
University of Missouri

"This handbook occupies a unique niche in the professional literature. It bridges the gap between the principles and techniques of counseling and the personal biographical experience of individuals in their distinctive sociocultural contexts. The interwoven personal, cultural, and universal strands come alive in a scholarly yet readable fashion."
