Exploring the ways that clients' lives, and family therapy itself, are constrained by larger forces of racial, cultural, sexual, and class-based inequality, this groundbreaking volume expands the boundaries of the field and works toward truly inclusive clinical practice. Editor Monica McGoldrick--whose earlier Ethnicity and Family Therapy provides in-depth portraits of the family systems of more than 40 ethnic groups--here takes up vital cultural issues that cut across all ethnicities. Integrating theoretical exposition, case vignettes, and evocative autobiographical narratives, contributors offer concrete suggestions for improving family therapy training and developing services that minority families may experience as more relevant to their lives.

"A timely and comprehensive source, this anthology provides a cultural lens for contextualizing reality. Amassing a stellar list of contributors, the book expands our views of families and establishes therapy as a more inclusive endeavor. An essential resource for every practitioner working with multicultural populations."
-Lillian Comas-Díaz, PhD

"With her visionary energy, Monica McGoldrick brings us a rare and satisfying book that extends the meaning of family therapy, expands the consciousness of the therapist, and insists that the reader be deeply changed in some fundamental way. To pay careful attention to the compelling insights in this volume--and I suggest you do--is to take a large evolutionary leap forward."
-Harriet Lerner, PhD

"This book delivers more than a new vision of family therapy. The contributors give us new practices, new theories, and new theories of practice which have revolutionary implications for all psychotherapies and thus for all clients who share their lives, cultures, and problems with us. This paradigm-shifting volume documents and illuminates how culture is not only a label for the 'other,' but a coat of many colors which gives meaning, feeling, and value to all our lives, and which, once we take the measure of its profundity, will explode our common-sense notions of identity, psyche, and psychotherapy."
-Virginia Goldner, PhD
