For Alayjah Bellamy that couldn’t be more true. She’d been in love with Diggy since she was nineteen years old. Diggy was charming and his abilities to make her feel like she was wanted made her fall into a deeper kind of love. He spoiled her with extravagant gifts and bought her what her heart desired but just like everything in life, it came with a price. Diggy use to make her feel like she was floating on air. But now between the cocaine he snorted on a daily and the constant physical abuse Alayjah couldn’t help but to feel like she was in hell. Tired of being treated like a punching bag and walked over like a doormat Alayjah feels broken and beat down by the only man she ever gave her heart to. After a near death experience Alayjah finds herself fighting for her own life. A newfound friendship gives her a light of hope and Alayjah is determined to get from under the hell she’s enduring.

This wasn’t the job he signed up for, but no matter how hard he tries to fight, Baptiste is drawn to her. Alayjah is bringing out emotions inside if him that he didn’t know existed, but there was one problem. Alyajah was sleeping with the enemy and anything or anyone attached must die.
Both Alayjah and Baptiste must learn to trust again, but unbeknownst to them, they will need each other more than they both expected. Will past heartbreaks make Alayjah numb to idea of giving her heart away again? Will love be kind to them both? Read through these pages and discover if Alayjah and Baptiste will be standing together or will past secrets cause them to walk away from each other?
Handbook of Multicultural Mental Health
The text provides a comprehensive examination of issues concerning ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and mixed cultural identities and assists the reader in applying the information to counseling. Each chapter includes critical- thinking material, consisting of insight exercises, personal stories, and questions to consider. By Hastibe on Nov 24, I would not recommend this book. I found it to contain offensive simplifications and monolithic portrayals of diverse populations, making it a harmful source of misinformation. This book is stupendously bad.
Diversity in Counseling (Counseling Diverse Populations)
Intended for the mental health practitioner, the book translates research findings into information to be applied in practice. It recognizes diversity as extending beyond race and ethnicity to reflect characteristics or experiences related to gender, age, religion, disability, and socioeconomic status. Individuals are viewed as complex and shaped by different intersections and saliencies of multiple elements of diversity. Chapters have been wholly revised and updated, and new coverage includes indigenous approaches to assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of mental and physical disorders; spirituality; the therapeutic needs of culturally diverse clients with intellectual, developmental, and physical disabilities; suicide among racial and ethnic groups; multicultural considerations for treatment of military personnel and multicultural curriculum and training. Practicing clinicians and counselors, and researchers in clinical psychology and sociology. Psychologists, social workers, licensed professional counselors, psychiatrists and cross-cultural researchers.
