"This is a long-overdue book, and one that I hope will be read by all who want to help others through art around the world. It offers a splendid introduction to a wide variety of ways of thinking about and working with people from different cultural backgrounds. The diverse authors with their multifaceted orientations bring the concepts of multicultural competence and sensitivity alive in a most inclusive, insightful, and wonderful way." -- Judith A.
