Recently, Prof. Kate Friedman, Portland State University, wrote a book review on Facilitating Social Justice, Service Delivery, and Advocacy Through Multicultural Counseling Competencies (ISBN:9781668461556). Their review is published in the The Rehabilitation Professional journal. See an excerpt of the review below:
BOOK REVIEW: Facilitating Social Justice, Service Delivery, and Advocacy Through Multicultural Counseling Competencies explores how social variables, intersectionality, and multicultural competencies are connected to one of the essential words in the diversity lexicon: advocacy. Hach section underscores the importance of certain social variables and how one might be perceived and treated in the classroom, workplace, and interacting with community services. Covering topics such as disability competencies, trauma-informed counseling strategies, and race and identity, this premier reference source is an excellent resource for administrators and educators of both K-12 and higher education, librarians, students of higher education, social workers, health profes-sionals, mental health counselors, guidance counselors, researchers, and academicians. (IGI Global, 2023). In an increasingly diverse world, counselors and helping professionals are required to be attuned to the intersecting identities that impact how clients (and other counselors) experience the world. By building on the counseling profession's gold standard of the Multicultural Counseling Competencies (MCCs), the authors describe domains in an accessible format that provides both thought-provoking information as well as strategies for infusing these concepts across counseling practice.
