Spirituality and the therapeutic process : a comprehensive resource from intake to termination by Mark M Leach( Book )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 705 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is for therapists who want to enhance their effectiveness with clients whose spirituality is a salient part of their worldview. Whether or not the therapist has a spiritual background, the authors demonstrate that it is possible to honor clients' spiritual experience at each stage of the therapeutic process, from clinical intake through termination. Practical strategies, techniques, and examples are used to show how spirituality can influence each stage of treatment, and the authors describe the importance of ethical practice guidelines and therapist self-awareness when considering matters of spirituality. Self-reflection questions, diverse case examples, and a multiple-session case study chapter are provided to build readers' understanding and ability to incorporate spirituality into counseling and psychotherapy

"Drs. Leong and Leach have brought together established experts, in both multicultural counseling and suicidology, to combine cutting edge empirical research from general cultural diversity literature and apply it to suicide assessment, treatment, and prevention theory and practice.

Cultural diversity and suicide : ethnic, religious, gender, and sexual orientation perspectives by Mark M Leach( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The literature on the relationship between culture and suicide has historically been widely scattered and often difficult to find. This well-organized book summarizes that widespread literature so that counselors can begin to include diversity issues - now recognized as important variables to consider - when conducting suicide assessments or interventions. Cultural Diversity and Suicide focuses on Americans of European, African, Asian, Hispanic, and Native American backgrounds, and the cultural/ethnic variables the book examines focus on gender, age, religion, and sexuality."--Jacket
Culture and the therapeutic process : a guide for mental health professionals by Mark M Leach( Book )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While there are numerous resources for practitioners on the subject, the ambiguity remains of what actually constitutes effective multicultural counseling and psychotherapy and how it should be incorporated into their sessions. This book addresses the question of how to apply current theories and research with a unique "start-to-finish" approach, examining the role culture plays in each stage of the therapeutic process, from before the clinical intake to termination. Each chapter is devoted to one of these stages and provides practical strategies, techniques, examples, and case studies. The reader will find new ways to consider the influence of culture and expand their own knowledge and skills as a practitioner

Internationalizing the psychology curriculum in the United States by Frederick T. L Leong( )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Not long ago, psychology held that its Western-based tenets were universal truths applicable throughout the world. From this early naïve assumption, the discipline has evolved to realize the need for cross-cultural competence in both practice and research. Today, commitment to professional ethics and scientific advancement is driving the adaptation of theories, models, and therapies to create a more inclusive psychology for the age of globalization. Internationalizing the Psychology Curriculum in the United States responds to this challenge by setting out clear guidelines for educating and training new generations of culturally attuned practitioners and scholars. Addressing graduate course needs in a wide range of specialties, contributors explore the impact of sociopolitical and other local forces on the individual, and how this in turn can be used in more culturally sensitive and authentic practice. The book includes an overview of the evolution of psychology from ethnocentric bias to international worldview, and makes content-rich recommendations for modifying course design and objectives in these core areas: History of psychologyProfessional and research ethicsDevelopmental psychologySocial psychologyPersonalityGender psychologyClinical psychologyCounseling psychologySchool psychologyTesting and assessment. Industrial/organizational psychologyHealth psychologyPeace psychology Internationalizing the Psychology Curriculum in the United States makes an up-to-date reference for cross-cultural psychologists and an invaluable sourcebook for professors teaching upper- and graduate-level psychology courses

Affect and Persuasion Effects on Motivation for Information Processing by Mark M Leach( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between mood and information processing, particularly when reviewing the Elaboration Likelihood Model of persuasion, lacks conclusive evidence. This study was designed to investigate the hypothesis that information processing would be greater for mood-topic congruence than non mood-topic congruence. Undergraduate students (N=216) were induced with either a dysphoric, neutral, or elated mood condition and given either a strong or weak counterattitudinal appeal supporting senior comprehensive examinations. Depending on condition, subjects were informed that the examinatiions would be implemented either within 6 months (high personal relevance) or within 10 years (low personal relevance). A 2 x 2 x 2 Analysis of Variance and the Ryan-Einot-Gabriel-Welsch-Q individual comparisons method were used for group and cell comparisons. The results showed that dysphoric subjects elicited more favorable attitudes under the strong argument condition than did subjects within the elated condition. Dysphoric subjects therefore engaged in more effortful processing than did elated subjects. Personal relevance appeared to have no significant effect in either affective condition. In the neutral mood condition with high personal relevance, more favorable attitudes toward the message occurred within the strong argument condition than within the weak argument condition. Little significant message scrutiny occurred in the low relevance conditions. Overall results suggest that mood-topic congruence elicits more diligent processing of a counterattitudinal appeal.

The Effects of Multicultural Training Videos on Perceived Counselor Competence by Kevin M Kieffer( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research has shown that modeling is an effective learning technique. Since recent studies have advocated the use of culturally sensitive training videos in the training of student practitioners, counselors were shown counselor-client vignettes to determine whether or not the perceived credibility and cultural competency of the counselor was dependent on the presence of counselor-client self-talk. Graduate students (n=91), enrolled in counseling psychology programs at a major university, participated in the study. Participants were randomly assigned to watch two different vignettes depicting cross-cultural counseling in which the only difference between vignettes was that one set involved counselor and client self-talk while the other set did not. Results indicated that the counselor-client, self-talk condition was not significantly different from the no self-talk condition on two of the three instruments used to measure participant responses. However, a significant interaction effect of vignette type and participant condition was found when examining the results of one measure and may be explained by examining the type of self-talk each therapist used--one counselor engaged in more negative self-talk than did the other. Some implications for counselor development and student training are offered. Contains 14 references. (Rjm)
