This unique text features personal accounts from mental health professionals, professors and students facing issues of privilege and oppression in our diverse society. In this collection of articles, writers discuss discoveries and experiences about their own privileges and oppression, and ultimately, the compassion they've developed for individuals confronted with discrimination.

Each essay will inspire you to reflect on your own encounters with privilege and oppression, while discussion questions at the end of each story provide an opportunity to process these issues on a personal level. By studying these revealing stories of insight and understanding, you'll learn how to recognize, examine, and finally, come to terms with your own privileges and discrimination -- allowing you to become a stronger, more acute, and more effective practitioner of the helping professions.

"The power of the text as I see it is that it moves away from the stale "politically correct" tone of most multicultural texts to a "personal compassionate" stance." -Professor Thomas Scofield, University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh

"This text far exceeds my department requirement for a racial and ethnic diversity course." -Professor Margaret Elbow, Texas Technical University

"The text is wonderfully written with a seldom seen openness, truth, and vulnerability." -Professor Joy Whitman, DePaul University at Loop
