Additional Book Details

Voices of Color: First Person Accounts of Ethnic Minority Therapists is the first book to address the training, academic, and professional experiences of ethnic minority therapists. Using real cases, narratives, and biographical material, each chapter motivates the reader to ponder and challenge how issues related to mental health intersect with race/ethnicity within a broader diversity framework. 

The contributors represent various mental health disciplines, and they all write from a systemic perspective on therapy cases, theory, new models, and research. The authors present powerful narratives of how their personal and professional experiences inform each other.  These insider perspectives are placed within a broader systemic context highlighting the interplay between personal, academic, and professional political relationships and their symbiotic impact on individuals, families, and communities.  

These combined voices of color add a new and significant perspective to the awareness of students, clinicians, educators, supervisors, and administrators regarding their personal position vis-à-vis psychotherapy, different multicultural dimensions, and social justice.
