Theoretical and research literature are summarized in this edited book, which also includes practical applications for career counseling. Three chapters focus specifically on diversity (women, racial and ethnic minorities, and international cross-cultural).

This theory- and research-based book consists of self-contained chapters on career counseling issues with Asian Americans, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Americans. Rather than generalize about cultural differences, the authors present research-based information about groups, and suggestions for application of findings to the counseling setting. Chapter 11 gives a quick summary of multicultural issues to which counselors (and presumably advertising agency managers) should be sensitive.
