-Mary Monroe Kolek, Deputy Superintendent, New Canaan Public Schools, CT

A barrier-breaking guide to honoring each student's individuality

Kim L. Anderson brings her counseling expertise, personal experience, and compassionate perspective to this practical resource that cultivates "cultural competence"- an essential tool for working with diverse populations. Expanding the definition of culture, Culturally Considerate School Counseling addresses how biases have evolved in new and challenging ways, and provides strategies to help school counselors create safe and secure learning environments by:

Recognizing the unique needs of students, including those with various spiritual beliefs and body types Interacting with families, faculty, administrators, and communities in culturally considerate waysApplying practical tools learned from case illustrations and new data Engaging in self-reflection, self-care, and professional growth

Each chapter features a list of competencies, including the relevant ASCA National Model standards. The volume concludes with a "Culturally Considerate Counseling" model adapted from Anderson's work with veteran Corwin author Bonnie M. Davis, who contiributes to the book with a compelling foreword.

"The author writes in a clear voice for students and families who are marginalized by their differences from the mainstream, offering practical strategies for the practitioner to use with both individuals and systems. A copy of this should be on every school counselor's bookshelf." -- Patricia Hart DeNoble, Clinical Social Worker
"The author's compelling personal story and journey, which serves as a connecting narrative while also serving as a means of explicating specific points in the text, was engaging and resulted in a single-sitting, straight-through reading of the book." -- Mary Monroe Kolek, Deputy Superintendent
"This is an extremely thoughtful, well-referenced book that encourages counselors and educators conduct their own research and educate themselves with clients' issues. All of us (hopefully) experience transformation in varying degrees on professional and personal levels. I feel very strongly that we must all take the responsibility to open ourselves to be transformed. Kim's work has challenged and inspired me to continue the next steps in my own professional/personal (and thus, spiritual) evolution." -- Bradley A. Leger, Coordinator, Organization Development and Evaluation Unit
