For this discussion:
- After reading the first chapter from Counseling the Culturally Diverse: Theory and Practice, comment on your own reactions, negative or positive, to what Sue and Sue have to say.
- What suggestions or changes, if any, would you make to present this information in a way that seems less reactive?
- Why do you think this text is so commonly used to address issues of cultural diversity and multiculturalism in psychology and other social science fields?
