"Counseling American Minorities" (2003) by Donald Atkinson offers potentially useful information for current and future counseling practitioners, about culturally aware and sensitive approaches to counseling minority group members currently living in the United States.
This paper reviews the book and argues that Atkinson effectively explores the complex therapeutic implications of working with culturally diverse clients.

From the Paper:

"The first chapter also points out that although "minorities" are frequently regarded, especially by European-descended Caucasian Americans (still the large majority of counselors in America today), as somehow one large amalgamated block, of people "different from ourselves", the four minority groups discussed within the book are extremely distinct from one another: in values; beliefs; assumptions; attitudes; historical backgrounds, encounters with particular kinds of prejudices, and real life experiences."
