Here is the link to where you can upload the textbook for free. Go on:
The book online is the 5th edition, but we are required to use the 7th edition textbook. You can still use the 5th edition because they have the same information they are just worded differently. For this assignment read chapter 18 in the textbook, but I also want you to go on my student account and read the power points on chapter 18. Since the textbook editions are different please make sure that you read chapter 18 power points online after you are done reading chapter 18 in the textbook.
When working with multiracial clients, counselors should avoid stereotyping; become aware of their own stereotypes and preconceptions regarding interracial relationships and marriages; see multiracial people in a holistic fashion rather than as fractions of a person; and emphasize the freedom to choose one’s identity.
Taking into consideration the characteristics of multiracial individuals,1. Thoroughly discuss how you can provide effective therapy to such a population. Use the following questions to guide your discussion:
1. Why do some people of mixed-race heritage perceive or choose to identify themselves with only one race? Are certain interracial relationships more acceptable than others?
2. How might “the marginal syndrome” impact your work with bi/multiracial individuals?
3. What difficulties do you anticipate in working with multiracial families in your counseling practice?1. When you answer these questions please be specific, for example when you answer the first question write it like this “The way I can provide effective therapy to such a population is…”And do the same for the rest of the questions. Be specific enough where I can know that you are answering the questions and I can know exactly what questions you are answering.
