Summary
    For those who provide counseling services, cultural competency is imperative. Embracing Diversity addresses diversity concerns in addiction counseling. It explores students’ self-awareness, knowledge, and skills regarding various population groups and provides information on substance use issues, screening and assessment concerns, and treatment recommendations specific to diverse populations.

    The selected readings speak to the unique issues faced by African Americans, American Indians, Arab Americans, Asian Americans, Latinos, and women as they address their substance use disorders. Students will learn how to best meet the needs of those who have co-occurring disorders, those within the criminal justice system, and those who are economically disadvantaged. The material also addresses teens, young adults, and older adults, as well as members of the LGBTQ community, and those who are or have been military personnel.

    Embracing Diversity prepares counselors to assist individuals who come from differing walks of life and whose backgrounds and experiences must be taken into account in order to optimize successful outcomes. The book is suitable for graduate-level courses in addiction studies, psychology, social work, and multicultural counseling.

    "The text appropriately starts with basic diversity concepts and a description of racism, along with white privilege and the problem of colorblindedness. The chapter on microaggressions is very welcome, as it has been so extraordinarily buried and ignored for too long. All chapters are heavily evidence based with a large number of citations. I like the conciseness of each chapter, along with the large number of diverse groups the text covers, missing are medical personnel and athletes (I can supplement the text readily for these two groups), frankly, the vast majority of clients the addiction counselor would encounter are covered nicely in this text. There is no generic treatment of any group, rather very distinct requirements and qualities of each are covered, again, with many citations. The book is filled with questions for the student, group exercises, self-awareness exercises. The text also comes with a test bank for the instructor. We were thrilled upon receiving the book. Much is covered in 300 pages. Many thanks for a superb text!"
