Experiential Approach for Developing Multicultural Counseling Competence by Mary L. Fawcett and Kathy M. Evans is an ideal companion text for students preparing for a career in counseling or mental health. Mental-health workers-in-training need to learn to work effectively with clients from diverse backgrounds, and this text helps them develop these key skills by providing a ready-made resource of multicultural and diversity activities that instructors can assign to enhance student learning in class. It is applicable to all of the core courses in the counseling curriculum and it is developmentally designed to help students build multicultural and diversity competencies from the beginning level to an advanced level.
