Synopsis

Culturally Considerate School Counseling Helping Without Bias by Kim L. Anderson

Cultural competence has become a standard for all health and mental health professions and is essential to work with diverse populations. Expanding the definitions and experiences of culture, this book takes a specifically compassionate and introspective approach to addressing the continued biases dividing our classrooms and schools, explores how they manifest in this age of change, and provides strategies for school counsellors and other professional helpers within school communities. Twelve chapters grouped into four sections will 1) suggest new ways of considering student populations who may be seen, even heard, but seldom identified as needing unbiased help, 2) provide culturally considerate ways of interfacing with families, faculty, administration and community, 3) illustrate interventions via case vignettes and strategies from conventional and adjunct theories, and 4) support the need for self-reflection, self-care, and professional growth of school counsellors, social workers, and psychologists. Resources and useable references are also included. The book culminates with a model for Culturally Considerate Counseling adapted from the author's work with veteran Corwin author, Bonnie M. Davis, who also writes a compelling forward to the text.

Reviews

This is an extremely thoughtful, well-referenced book that encourages counselors and educators conduct their own research and educate themselves with clients
issues. All of us (hopefully) experience transformation in varying degrees on professional and personal levels

. I feel very strongly that we must all take the responsibility to open ourselves to be transformed. Kim's work has challenged and inspired me to continue the next steps in my own professional/personal (and thus, spiritual) evolution. -- Bradley A. Leger, Coordinator, Organization Development and Evaluation Unit The author's compelling personal story and journey, which serves as a connecting narrative while also serving as a means of explicating specific points in the text, was engaging and resulted in a single-sitting, straight-through reading of the book. -- Mary Monroe Kolek, Deputy Superintendent The author writes in a clear voice for students and families who are marginalized by their differences from the mainstream, offering practical strategies for the practitioner to use with both individuals and systems. A copy of this should be on every school counselor's bookshelf. -- Patricia Hart DeNoble, Clinical Social Worker
