Goes beyond traditional “job hunt strategies” to provide innovative solutions targeted to specific populations This graduate text for courses in career counseling is distinguished by its emphasis on creative interventions tailored to the unique needs of diverse populations. With a focus on career as a cornerstone of personal identity, the book explores the specific meaning of careers within different cultures and examines the challenges faced by—and potential solutions for--individuals with diverse backgrounds and needs. It describes unique interventions that allow counseling students to visualize and actualize career counseling with a wide range of clients and demonstrates techniques targeted to each population that can be put into practice immediately. The text provides demographic information regarding specific job-seeking groups including such “traditional” populations as college graduates and working parents, as well as groups that encounter special challenges such as stay-at-home parents returning to work, formerly incarcerated individuals, people with disabilities, teen mothers, African American, Hispanic and Asian males and females, older adults, LGBT individuals, and many others. Over fifty creative, innovative interventions that have been successfully applied help counselors to provide effective career development strategies with each population. Chapters include a vignette representing each population, group demographics, a history of career paths and obstacles, unique needs of the group, supports already in place, and specific career counseling assessment and interventions. The book also provides abundant resources for additional study. In addition to its value to career counselors, the text will also be useful to personal counselors who often deal with their client’s career issues during treatment. Key Features: Provides in-depth exploration of underserved populations who hold unique career development needs Includes innovative career counseling interventions that move beyond standard “job hunt strategies” or “resume preparation tips” Explores life stage concerns related to career development across multiple diverse identities Gives readers step-by-step details on implementing over 40 innovative career counseling techniques Presents case studies that provide clear examples of the application of relevant interventions

"A must-read book for all mental health professionals wanting to keep up with today's most important clients...practical, concrete, hands-on details from firsthand experts on ethnic populations." --Richard Suinn, PhD, Colorado State University, Past president (1999), American Psychological Association The rich mosaic of racial and ethnic diversity defines our society now more than ever. For students and professional psychologists, this translates into a critical need to address a range of cultural diversity issues, as well as potential biases. Recently, the American Psychological Association (APA) recognized the importance of cultural competence for psychologists through its adoption of its Multicultural Guidelines. Applying those guidelines to real-world practice is both complex and challenging. Only one text brings it all into sharp focus: Strategies for Building Multicultural Competence in Mental Health and Educational Settings. Edited and written by renowned multicultural experts, this informative guide is full of concrete strategies and case examples, all geared toward achieving the goal of culturally competent practice. Chapter by chapter, it uses a variety of practice modalities in various settings to help all mental health professionals increase their familiarity and compliance with the APA Multicultural Guidelines. Beginning with a useful summary of the APA guidelines, Strategies for Building Multicultural Competence in Mental Health and Educational Settings covers the guidelines' relevance to: * Individual and group counseling * Couples and family counseling * Career counseling with people of color * Independent practice settings * Multicultural consultations and organizational change * Academic mental health training settings * Clinical and hospital settings * College counseling center settings * Elementary and secondary school settings This timely reference also considers building multicultural competence around indigenous healing practices; in clinical supervision contexts; and in culturally sensitive research. Taken together, the book is a much-needed blueprint for making culturally informed decisions, explaining how the multicultural initiatives you implement today can he'p shape the field's future.

This book is the first edited volume devoted exclusively to career counseling with African Americans. African Americans are now at parity with the graduation rates of White Americans, yet disparities in employment continue to abound. At the same time the job market is changing and in need of more highly qualified workers, society must begin to understand the career and employment needs of Black Americans if it is to more effectively utilize this available market resource. Recent data indicates that stronger economies have a competitive edge if they have a more diverse workforce. More effective career counseling must be provided for African Americans so that they can become more thoroughly integrated in the world of work, thus creating stronger economies for society and more satisfying and challenging lives for this segment of the United States. Career Counselors need to be trained to effectively interact with African Americans. This volume begins to shed more light on just how to do that. This book presents nine significant topics focusing on career counseling for African Americans: *basic issues and concepts; *career assessment; *career counseling with African Americans; *career counseling with dual career African American couples; *career transition issues; *affirmative career counseling with African American women; *career counseling in non-traditional career fields; *the impact of the glass ceiling on the career development of African Americans; and *future directions in career counseling theory, research, and practice with African Americans.
