Blitz, L. V., & Greene, M. P. (Eds.). (2007). Racism and Racial Identity: Reflections on Urban Practice in Mental Health and Social Services. Binghamton, NY: Haworth Press. $36.00 (paper).

This book is an essential professional resource for mental health practitioners working in all disciplines, including social work, psychology, and counseling and for students preparing for careers in mental health fields. It captures the insights and struggles of social work practitioners joined together in their efforts to rid the mental health and social services field of embedded bias and racism. The book's contributors address the "invisible" aspects of racism (stress, abuse, and trauma), social functioning, domestic violence, and foster care, with a special focus on women and West Indian, Afro-Caribbean, and Mexican clients. The contributor's in-depth exploration of racial identity and internalized racism of both therapist and client will inspire mental health professionals and students to incorporate deeper levels of antiracist philosophy in their work.
