Inspired and informed by the author's own research, this uniquely engaging textbook brings the focus to how racism affects the therapeutic relationship, creatively exploring the subject of working with people of African, Caribbean, Asian and Mixed heritage in both therapeutic practice and clinical supervision. 

Unpacking the latest concepts and theories, and offering a wealth of real-life stories and examples, the author reflects, with a voice of empathy and understanding, on how the challenge of everyday racism, as well as the enduring, intergenerational pain caused by historical racism, can affect the therapeutic dynamic, and how practitioners can deliver a truly inclusive therapeutic service that tackles these issues sensitively.
