Reviews

The authors have put together a must-read book for all counselors and counseling psychologists- not just those who might consider doing cross-cultural counseling. All practitioners and researchers need to have a fundamental understanding of the cultural context of their work, and this book provides the foundation for that knowledge. The chapters address practitioners wanting to work in countries outside the US, researchers wanting the background to do cross-national work, and also helps to ground US based counseling within a cultural context. Clearly, counseling in the United States in response to a particular set of contexts, and the authors thoughtfully help readers to understand that context. I applaud the authors for their careful analysis of the issues and will require this book for my students. -- Nadya A. Fouad, Ph.D., ABPP, University Distinguished Professor and Chair
