This book promotes a better understanding of the dual impact of race-ethnicity and gender on psychological. It presents a "Next-generation" approach to diverse mental health issues and addresses the needs of under-served and marginalized populations.

Multicultural aspects of psychology have received some attention in the literature in the last decade. A number of texts currently address these significant concerns, for example, Counseling the Culturally Different (Sue & Sue, 2008); Handbook of Multicultural Counseling ( Poterotto et l., 2009); and Handbook of Multicultural Counseling Competencies (Pope-Davis & Coleman, 2005). In their most recent editions, several of these books address more nuanced complexities of diversity, for example, the intersections of gender or social class with race-ethnicity. Meanwhile, other texts have addressed gender issues in psychology (Handbook of Counseling Women, Counseling Men), with some attention paid to racial-ethnic and other diversity concerns. Clearly the progression of scholarship in this field reflects the importance of incorporating multiple aspects of diversity within psychology. However, no book currently exists that fully addresses the complexities of race-ethnicity and gender together. Better understanding of the dual impact of race-ethnicity and gender on psychological functioning may lead to more effective conceptualizations of a number of mental health issues, such as domestic violence, addictions, health-related behaviors and achievement. Exploring the impact of race-ethnicity and gender also may provide a broader understanding of self-in-community, as this affects individuals, families and other social groups and work and career development. Topics of interest may include identity development, worldviews and belief systems, parenting styles, interventions for promoting resilience and persistence and strategies for enhancing more accurate diagnostic and treatment modalities. Today's world is comprised of multiple and intersecting communities that remain in need of psychological models and interventions that support and promote both individual and collective mental health. We believe that utilizing unidimensional conceptual models (e.g. focusing solely on race-ethnicity or gender) no longer adequately addresses psychological concerns that are dynamic, complex and multi-faceted. The proposed Handbook will focus on timely topics which historically have been under-addressed for a number of diverse populations.

Dr. Miville is the author of over 50 publications and several training DVD's dealing with multicultural issues in counseling and psychology. Dr. Miville is the Director of the Winter Roundtable on Cultural Psychology and Education at Teachers College, and is Editor of the Around the Winter Roundtable Forum for The Counseling Psychologist. She is serving or has served on several editorial boards, including Journal of Counseling Psychology, Cultural Diversity and Ethnic Minority Psychology, Assessment, and Training and Education in Professional Psychology.

Angela D. Ferguson, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor at Howard University. Prior to her arrival at Howard University, Dr. Ferguson worked at George Washington University in the Organizational Sciences Department and at the University of Florida as a staff psychologist in the Counseling Center. She has also served as a researcher and consultant to organizations, such as the Landmine Survivors Network (an NGO) Washington, DC and the American Red Cross, National Headquarters Washington, DC. Dr. Ferguson's research and scholarly work have focused on two major areas: a) intersections of multiple identities, specifically examining the interaction of multiple forms of social oppression for communities of color on identity development; and b) trauma and resilience factors in culturally diverse populations. Her research infuses a cultural perspective relative to the ways in which the sociopolitical and historical experiences of oppressed, marginalized groups influences social, emotional, and sociocultural aspects of decision making, and personal and group identity. She has published several book chapters and articles focused on both areas and made numerous presentations at local, national, and international professional conferences.

We each have multiple identities that have varying degrees of importance. But when identity comes with a history of second-class citizenship, its psychological and social impact can be felt in all aspects of life, especially if more than one identity carries these experiences.

The Handbook of Race-Ethnicity and Gender in Psychology gives clinicians up-to-date findings on its subject and guidelines for incorporating this knowledge into effective practice. Contributors apply intersectional models of diversity to clinical topics (the therapeutic relationship, assessment), social experience (families, spirituality), life-course concerns (education, career development, education, aging), and social justice issues (immigration, crime and correctional interventions). Through these many contexts, practitioners are given more accurate and responsive ways of providing services to a wider range of diverse clients. Included in the Handbook:

  • Intersections of race-ethnicity, gender, and sexual minority communities.
  • Poverty at the intersections: Implications for socially just community-based practice.
  • Exploring the intersection of parenting, ethnicity, race, and gender in the deconstruction of the nuclear family archetype.
  • A multiple-identity approach to leadership development.
  • Eating disorders and body image among women and men of color.
  • Domestic violence: What every multicultural clinician should know.

The Handbook of Race-Ethnicity and Gender in Psychology is a crucial skill-building reference for professional psychologists (e.g., clinical psychologists, counseling psychologists, school psychologists) and other mental health practitioners, including counselors and social workers. It should also interest academic psychologists, including social and community psychologists, educators, women's studies professionals, and higher education administrators.
