The future of the counseling profession lies in the merging of
multiculturalism and social justice to positively impact and
advocate for individuals and their communities. In this book, Drs.
Ratts and Pedersen combine the very best from the multicultural
and social justice traditions into a new paradigm, the Counselor-
Advocate-Scholar model, which is intended to guide counselors
toward a deeper understanding of the connections between
these two counseling forces and how to integrate them into
practice. Significantly updated and expanded from the previous
edition, this fourth edition focuses on applying multiculturalism and social justice in various
clinical settings with diverse client populations, and highlights the seamless transition
between individual counseling and systems work. Emphasis is on the foundational theories
and concepts needed to understand the place of multiculturalism and social justice in
counseling, and on practical strategies that can help counselors develop into multicultural
and social justice competent helping professionals.

A completely new applications section contains nine chapters on working with oppressed
client groups, including African Americans; Asian and Pacific Islanders; Latinas; multiracial
individuals; Native Americans; lesbian, gay, bisexual, and questioning clients; transgender
individuals; women; and socioeconomically disadvantaged clients. Clients experiencing
religious and spiritual concerns are addressed as well. Each of the chapters in this section
provides a historical overview of the group, identifies key multicultural concepts and systemic
barriers, and offers an illustrative case study and numerous counseling examples.
