Description : Thought leaders examine social justice counseling from a global perspective in the latest edition of this pioneering book. Part 1 examines the historical and contemporary context of social justice counseling. Part 2 presents ideas for promoting social justice and challenging oppression and marginalization with individual clients and communities. Topics in this section include perspectives on peace, violence, and conflict; recommendations for global initiatives in school counseling; advocacy for decent work; promoting gender equity; fighting racism; and implementing social action strategies with LGBTQ+ communities, older people, people with disabilities, and undocumented immigrants. Part 3 contains chapters on the role of neuroscience in advancing social justice and infusing social justice perspectives in ethics, research, and counselor training. "This third edition could not come at a better time given the current national and global political climates. Lee and his colleagues raise the bar, challenging counselors to move from simply understanding social injustice to engaging in actions that improve systemic inequities. The magnitude of this charge cannot be ignored. This text should be mandatory in every counselor education program in the United States and across the globe; the time is now. Counselors must take the lead by leaning in and changing the world one person at a time, one community at a time, and one nation at a time." —Colleen R. Logan, PhD, Fielding Graduate University "Courtland Lee continues to be a leader in helping to advance social justice in the counseling profession. This book builds on previous editions by offering new and emerging strategies for implementing social justice with clients and communities. It pushes the limits of what is possible when counselors incorporate social justice into their practice." —Manivong J. Ratts, PhD, Seattle University "This text provides crucial information on how counselors can engage in social justice work throughout their practice, research, and advocacy activities to not only become effective change agents but also transform how we see ourselves and the world." —Anneliese A. Singh, PhD, University of Georgia *Requests for digital versions from the ACA can be found on wiley.com. *To request print copies, please visit the ACA website here. *Reproduction requests for material from books published by ACA should be directed to [email protected]

Description : "Nowhere is there more of a need for an understanding of multiculturalism than in the mental health profession."--BOOK JACKET. "When client and counselor are from different cultural backgrounds, they tend to view things from disparate perspectives. Though a background in multiculturalism is required for program accreditation, most existing texts limit coverage to ethnicity, without the emphasis of broad concepts such as discrimination and acculturation, or coverage of gender, sexual orientation, disability, or aging issues. An Introduction to Multicultural Counseling is a primer designed to teach counseling students how to effectively deal with such discrepancies."--BOOK JACKET. "This book is essential for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students studying human services, psychology, counseling, and ethnic studies. It also serves as a practical guide for providers of continuing education workshops for counselors, psychologists, teachers, and social workers."--BOOK JACKET.

Counselling Older Adults, now in its second edition, seeks to engender in healthcare and social service professionals and caregivers a deeper understanding of older persons, so as to counsel them more effectively. In addition, this easy-to-read book provides managers and supervisors of older workers with numerous useful tips for daily applications.
