Clinical psychologists deal with many kinds of diversity. While diversity due to culture may be the most important kind that affects their work, it is useful to remember that diversity in social class, sexual orientation, gender definitions, disabilities, political perspectives, aesthetic preferences, religion, and the definition of what is a true of may also affect their practice. Diversity may be defined as the condition of interacting with another person who is perceived to be different. It is a condition which is increasingly more frequent, since most societies are multicultural and a number of factors favor interactions among the cultures. In the US the clients of clinical psychologists are becoming more different from the white middle-class which was the usual clientele of these professionals a few years ago.
