Each chapter points us towards how difference and diversity in the therapy room can challenge us to be better therapists. The author does not lecture but makes us aware of ourselves in relation to ourselves, social history, the client’s self and the space in the therapy room where differences sit. This short book is not a quick read; nor is it of small impact. It is without doubt one to revisit and be refreshed by when needed.
Really useful exploration of working with difference and diversity for trainee and experienced counsellors alike
A very good book which covers a wide range of topics with regards to diversity in therapeutic practice. The case discussions are very relevant and clearly link to the theory presented. The content seems contemporary.
Good challenging text
