Multiculturalism is a fact of life. All counseling practices are culture-bound and contextual, influenced by historical, sociopolitical and economic factors. Multicultural competencies can guide effective working alliances, solution-oriented goals, and a valuing of individuals' cultural core identity.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To describe a multicultural counseling competency paradigm.
  2. To describe sociopolitical and historical factors as links to identity evolution.
