“The authors are well positioned to write this important and necessary book,” said Laura Reid Marks, Ph.D. in her review of the book for Career Convergence Magazine. “Overall, some particular strengths of the book include its emphasis and inclusion of existing guidelines and competencies, its focus on the breath of diversity that exists (age, race, gender, etc.), and its use of case studies, as well as review and reflection question exercises that help the readers to cement some of the key concepts.”
