Developing Cultural Humility

Developing Cultural Humility
Embracing Race, Privilege and Power

Edited by:

July 2013 | 304 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
For many students, the word culture is synonymous with race and ethnicity. Yet, a large majority of students who go into counsellor education programs are Caucasian. By its very premise, multicultural therapy leaves out Caucasian individuals, leaving many to believe they have 'no culture' and feeling disconnected from culture, multiculturalism and social justice. Culture, as it is beginning to be defined, can be seen not as a particular race or ethnicity, rather, as the intersections of multiple identities. Thus, everyone, no matter what their race or ethnicity, has a culture.

This book is the first to deal with culture more broadly and attempt to help students examine their own culture. This allows Caucasian trainees to embrace culture and have a stronger connection to multiculturalism without feeling alienated from the discussion.
