Summary:
"Inclusive cultural empathy is a lens through which helping professionals can view themselves, their clients, and the very construct of the helping relationship. Empathy, as defined in the Western context, takes for granted an individualistic interpretation of human desires, pain, and reasons for seeking help. This book shows readers how to reach beyond the comfort zone of an individualistic perspective and increase their competence in a relationship-centered context. The authors, weave their own layered multicultural experiences with procedural, theoretical, and practical lessons to bring readers a model for how they might infuse their own clinical work with inclusive principles and multicultural sensitivity. The authors present a broad definition of culture--to include nationality, ethnicity, language, age, gender, socioeconomic status, family roles, and other affiliations--and engage the reader with lively examples and exercises that can be adapted for classroom, supervision groups, or individual use. Readers will learn how to help clients explore, discover, and leverage those internalized voices of the "culture teachers" that instruct us in who we are, how to behave, and how to resolve our problems or find life balance"--Jacket.
