"Elements of Culture in Counseling: Foundations & Practice "represents an innovative departure from the majority of multicultural counseling texts. Unlike other more traditional texts, this book considers a wider perspective of important multicultural counseling concepts rather than presenting information on counseling to specific cultural groups. Within this fresh and more inclusive context, this text takes both students and instructors beyond the surface of race and ethnicity and on to an in-depth exploration of the central and broad concepts vital to counseling across all cultures. Special Features Include: A focus on the central concepts of multicultural counseling, as opposed to a group approach focused on counseling specific cultures. "Taking it Further" focus questions at the end of each chapter that allow students to analyze, synthesize, discuss, and retain what they have just read. Case Studies that present real-life examples that clearly illustrate the concepts and insights discussed in each chapter and show how these concepts translate into situations outside of the classroom. An innovative chapter dedicated to the socioeconomic realities of counseling that helps students understand the increasing depth and complexity of multicultural counseling.

Although spirituality is gaining increased interest in counseling, counselors are reluctant to incorporate the spiritual dimension into their practice. This text explores spirituality in counseling so as to encourage counselors to consider their own spirituality and to facilitate the enhancement of spiritual wellness for their clients. The chapters present a balance of practical and theoretical concerns. Some of the theoretical issues covered here include the interplay of spirituality, religion, and counseling; theories behind spiritual wellness; the cross-cultural issues presented by religious values; approaching clients of different religious background; the spiritual and ethical beliefs of humanists; the spiritual journey; and observers' perceptions of how one counselor handled religious issues. Articles which explore some of the more practical concerns in counseling examine feminist therapy; the spiritual journey of gays and lesbians; interreligious group encounters; views held by counselors and clergy about depressive religious ideation; multicultural awareness of religious beliefs and practices; the spiritual needs of the dying; and the counselor's role in right-to-die decisions. It is hoped that the information here will be useful to neophytes, researchers, and practitioners. Practitioners should also be challenged to explore their own spiritual dimensions. (RJM)
