About this book

This second edition book provides an update to multicultural psychology and counseling research findings, and the DSM-5 in sociopolitical and cultural contexts. It links social psychology with current cognitive science research on implicit learning, ethnocentrism (attribution error, in-group favoritism, and asymmetric perception), automatic information processing, and inappropriate generalization. Chapters discuss the interwoven characteristics of multiple identities of individuals such as race, gender, class, disability, age, religion, region, and sexual orientation. In addition, the book offers concrete strategies to facilitate inner-dialogue and discussion of self-perception and interpersonal relationships. 
Featured topics in this book include: 

  • Intrapersonal communication and the biases that can be involved. 
  • The impact of a provider’s personal values and beliefs on assessing and treating clients. 
  • The Social Categorization Theory of Race. 
  • The Social Categorization Theory of Gender. 
  • The Social Dominance Theory of Class. 
  • Identity Construction, Multiple Identities, and their intersectionality. 
Social Justice, Multicultural Counseling, and Practice, Second Edition will be of interest to researchers and professors in clinical psychology, counseling psychology, multicultural psychology, social psychology, cognitive neuroscience, social work, social justice, equity, and inclusion work as well as health care providers.

About the authors

Dr. Heesoon Jun was born in Seoul, South Korea and was socialized by a family which valued honor, commitment, religious and intellectual freedom but held implicit bias on race and class.  She came to the US as a young adult to study psychology as an undergraduate.  There, her sense of self shattered as her status changed from majority to minority, privileged to oppressed, and self-confident to self-doubting student. Dr. Jun’s bicultural and bilingual experiences, being an academician and practitioner, searching for balance between two world-views have been instrumental in emphasizing providers’ awareness of their own cultural values and biases in order to understand clients’ world views; paradigm shifts in thinking (from conventional to holistic); and learning (from conceptual to transformative) cognitive neuroscience and mindfulness practice in order to walk the walk of social justice and multicultural counseling competencies. Dr. Jun has a Master’s degree in clinical psychology from Radford University and a Ph.D. in educational psychology from the University of Washington.  Currently, she resides in Washington State where she is a licensed psychologist with a part-time private practice and is a professor of psychology at Evergreen State College.
