This book describes how therapists can combine multicultural theory with their own lived experience to meaningfully engage clients in issues of culture.

Many mental health practitioners (MHPs) today recognize and affirm the importance of cultural background - race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality - in their clients' lives. But many MHPs struggle to address cultural issues in practice, whether because of unfamiliarity, or fear of giving offense, or because the presence of cultural differences or similarities between client and therapist that can make it difficult to view the client objectively.

The authors of this book recommend that MHPs focus not on what they have learned in previous clinical or educational settings, but on what they don't know about the client who sits across from them. They discuss practical strategies for engaging with clients and their cultural identities, including repairing mistakes that threaten the therapeutic relationship.

Through a wide range of case examples and hands-on exercises, the authors demonstrate how therapists can learn to acknowledge their limitations, and view them as opportunities to connect with clients at a deeper level.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The greatest strength of Cultural Humility is the inclusion of case studies in the concluding chapters and the case vignettes that are shared throughout the text. I found the case vignettes to be realistic and reflective of the complexity and challenge that often characterizes many of the exchanges between a client and clinician." --PsycCRITIQUES

"As a whole, this is a well-organized and timely text. It includes the authors' stories, current research, practical exercises, and case studies. The work is strongly recommended for collections in counseling and other helping professions that engage with diverse cultures." --Choice
