Summary
This book addresses the multiplicity of cultural influences that work to form each of us. The true experience of identity is complex and contextual. A person is not simply Latino or gay. Asian American or a person with a disability, an older American or a refugee. Rather, one or any combination of these identities may be salient for a particular individual in a given context. The author offers this book as a framework for recognizing and working with cultural influences--helping readers understand identity as a multidimensional combination of age, developmental and acquired disabilities, religion, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, indigenous heritage, national origin, and gender. /// Engagingly written and featuring a variety of case examples, this book combines the latest research with vignettes from the author's own practice. Each chapter's contents are summarized in "key ideas" tables, which facilitates use of the guidelines in the classroom as well as in the clinic. This book provides a framework that can be used with a person of any cultural identity. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)
