Description

Description:
Multiculturalism and diversity have gained increasing focus in the counseling profession over the past couple of decades. Several years ago it was desirable albeit optional for mental health professionals to take a stand and integrate multicultural components into training and practice, but today adopting a multicultural focus is nonnegotiable. It is expected, and for a very good reason. It is almost a certainty that the U.S. Census of 2010 will show a major increase in the number of racial and ethnic minorities living in the United States since the previous census. Diversity offers both challenges and opportunities, and supervisors need to address these important issues with their supervisees. Let's begin by defi ning culture. Does culture encompass ethnographic, demographic, status, and affi liation variables? Are within-group differences as significant as between-group differences? And on a more personal note, how do you identify your own culture through concrete, behavioral, and symbolic means?



Objectives:

  1. Define multiculturalism as it relates to the supervision process
  2. Examine and identify hidden agendas, biases and prejudices that could affect the supervisory relationship.
  3. Define the terms culturally competent assessment and social advocacy
