It is essential for counselors and counseling professionals to understand their personal biases and how they can impact the counseling process, in addition to respecting and honoring their clients’ beliefs. Communication and sharing experiences between counsellors is an effective strategy for perfecting methods to identify and address these biases. This comprehensive research book explores creative healing approaches for working with diverse clients in a variety of geographical locations, developmental levels, and complex and varied identities. Case studies apply the Multicultural and Social Justice Counseling Competencies (MSJCCs) to the counseling relationship and look at unique aspects of the client’s identity, specific approaches, and outcomes of the counseling relationship. Topics include higher education, international counseling, and gender bias. For counselors, therapists, psychologists, counselor educators, graduate students, practitioners, academicians, and researchers.
