Multicultural and intersectional aspects of identity are crucial components of human psychology. Yet, properly teaching and accounting for these factors in psychology courses can be a challenge. This comprehensive book provides instructors with practical guidance for incorporating multicultural perspectives into their courses and creating more welcoming and inclusive classrooms. The contributors are experienced instructors of graduate and undergraduate courses who describe effective teaching strategies, activities, and assignments that encourage students to contribute their viewpoints, learn from each other, challenge their own biases, and expand their worldviews.

Chapters examine specific sociocultural groups based on gender, ethnicity, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic and ability status. Authors discuss these topics using an intersectional approach, recognizing that individuals are complex beings who are members of multiple groups and whose overlapping identities influence their development, social relationships, and worldviews. Other chapters offer recommendations for integrating multiculturalism into core psychology courses, including introduction to psychology classes, which are most undergraduate students' only exposure to psychology.
