"I highly recommend the Handbook for courses in international and cross-cultural psychology, courses on multicultural issues in counseling and psychology, and as a text for professional issues courses in counseling and psychology. The Handbook is an excellent resource for counselors, psychologists and other mental health professionals working internationally or at home." -- John L. Romano * APA Society of Counseling Psychology Division 17 International Section Newsletter *
"Covering the whole world in only 564 pages is a daunting task, even if one is only looking at one slice of that big pie, but Gerstein, Heppner, AEgisdottir, Leung, and Norsworthy have managed to do this in an interesting and readable way. If the contribution of this important work is to help counselors and psychologists understand that mental health interventions solely focused on the individual may not be effective in a group- or community-oriented culture, it would be an important book. However, International Handbook of Cross-Cultural Counseling does much more, filling an important gap in the counseling literature. Never before in one place have the issues of the role of counseling around the world been addressed in such a comprehensive way." -- Mark Pope * PsycCRITIQUES *
"[T]he IHCCC is an essential reference for counseling professionals, providing information on current challenges and the development of the counseling profession in diverse countries worldwide. The IHCCC is expected to serve as a basic resource book facilitating both internationalization and indigenization of the counseling profession." -- Younnjung Gong * Journal of Asia Pacific Counseling, 2011, Vol. 1, No. 2, 199-200 *
