This book takes a new approach to teaching students to think and learn about issues of race and diversity. It aims to break down the traditional categorizations of racial/ethnic groupings and focuses on teaching students to think and learn in a multidimensional manner, rather than in a linear fashion. The key to the book lies in its aim to teach students to practise culturally competent counselling by taking into consideration a client's multiple identities, such as a middle-aged, African American woman, who might be facing issues due to her racial grouping, her age and her gender. The book is filled with activities, excercises and examples that help students think about racism in a non-traditional manner, rather than the typical ways often taught, making it very timely and reflecting the transformation of thinking that is occuring in the field.

A relational approach to evaluating your suicidal clients. Given the isolating nature of suicidal ideation and actions, it’s all too easy for clinicians conducting a suicide assessment to find themselves developing tunnel vision, becoming overly focused on the client’s individual risk factors. Although critically important to explore, these risks and the danger they pose can’t be fully appreciated without considering them in relation to the person’s resources for safely negotiating a pathway through his or her desperation. And, in turn, these intrapersonal risks and resources must be understood in context—in relation to the interpersonal risks and resources contributed by the client’s significant others. In this book, Drs. Douglas Flemons and Leonard M. Gralnik, a family therapist and a psychiatrist, team up to provide a comprehensive relational approach to suicide assessment. The authors offer a Risk and Resource Interview Guide as a means of organizing assessment conversations with suicidal clients. Drawing on an extensive research literature, as well as their combined 50+ years of clinical experience, the authors distill relevant topics of inquiry arrayed within four domains of suicidal experience: disruptions and demands, suffering, troubling behaviors, and desperation. Knowing what questions to ask a suicidal client is essential, but it is just as important to know how to ask questions and how to join through empathic statements. Beyond this, clinicians need to know how to make safety decisions, how to construct safety plans, and what to include in case note documentation. In the final chapter, an annotated transcript serves to tie together the ideas and methods offered throughout the book. Relational Suicide Assessment provides the theoretical grounding, empirical data, and practical tools necessary for clinicians to feel prepared and confident when engaging in this most anxiety-provoking of clinical responsibilities.
