This essential text explores the intersectionality of the self in therapeutic practice, bringing together theoretical foundations and practical implications to provide clear guidance for students and practitioners.

Bringing together a collection of insightful and experienced clinicians, this book examines the ways in which intersectionality influences all phases of clinical and supervisory work, from outreach, assessment, and through to termination. Integrating research with clinical practice, chapters not only examine the theoretical, intersectional location of the self for the therapist, client, or supervisee, but they also consider how this social identity effects the therapeutic process and, crucially, work with clients. The book includes first-hand accounts, case studies, and reflections to demonstrate how interactions are influenced by gender, race, and sexuality, offering practical ideas about how to work intentionally and ethically with clients.

Engaging, informative, and practical, this book is essential reading for students, supervisors, family, marriage, and couple therapists, and clinical social workers who want to work confidently with a range of clients, as well as clinical professionals interested in the role of intersectionality in their work.

Reviews and Endorsements

"The concept of Intersectionality breathes a dynamic understanding for the clinician. In this superbly crafted volume, the authors edify and inspire both clinician and supervisor with a deeper grasp of the multifaced world we and our clients inhabit. This practical book, with humility, gives you, the clinician, new tools, toward the quest of becoming a master healer." - H. Charles Fishman, M.D., Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, University of Hawaii, John A. Burns School of Medicine.

"If 'intersectionality' is the fourth wave in psychotherapy, this book serves as a strong propellor that drives the movement forward. A collective effort by leading practitioners and researchers in the field, this book translates the innovative concept of intersectionality into clinical application through the writers’ stories about their own social locations and the intriguing real-life cases. As an educator, a practitioner, and an advocate, I have this book to thank for making 'intersectionality' learnable, teachable, and doable." - Yiqing Youngman, Psy.D., Department of Psychology, La Salle University, USA.
