Cultural Humility: Engaging Diverse Identities in Therapy
This book describes how therapists can combine multicultural theory with their own experience to meaningfully engage clients in issues of culture. The authors recommend a stance of cultural humility, focusing the therapist’s attention not on educational or clinical knowledge, but on what she doesn’t know about her client. They discuss practical strategies for engaging with clients and their cultural identities, including repairing mistakes that threaten the therapeutic relationship. Through a wide range of case examples and hands-on exercises, the authors demonstrate how therapists can learn to acknowledge their limitations, and them as opportunities to connect with clients at a deeper level.
