This guide for those working in the helping professions presents information needed to provide culturally competent services to clients from a variety of backgrounds. It addresses theories of cultural identity and self-reflection and explores how helping professionals can shape their professions and society in ways that increase respect for diversity. Culturally competent work within certain specific groups—Native Americans, African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, Jewish Americans, Arab Americans, and immigrants and refugees—is also discussed.
