Communication is key to the therapeutic relationship, and culture and language are at the core of communication. The first edition of "Race, Culture and Counselling" was a groundbreaking text on the subject; this new edition is significantly revised to include new perspectives on the impact of race, culture, and language in therapy. The topics discussed include: important issues concerning race and power; the impact culture has on communication; how dominant theories influence counseling; and the concept of mixed-identity therapeutic relationships.
