Description

"Experiential Approach for Developing Multicultural Counseling Competence" is an ideal companion text for students preparing for a career in counseling or mental health. Mental health workers-in-training need to learn to work effectively with clients from diverse backgrounds, and this text helps them develop these key skills by providing a ready-made resource of multicultural and diversity activities that instructors can assign to enhance student learning in class. It is applicable to all of the core courses in the counseling curriculum and it is developmentally designed to help students build multicultural and diversity competencies from the beginning level to an advanced level. The book is structured around the nine core competency areas of the Multicultural Counseling Competencies (MCCs). These competencies are designated by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) to help students learn the critical areas of personal identity and racial identity and awareness of their own cultural values and biases (knowledge, awareness, and skills), and to develop an understanding of both the counselor and client's worldviews. The book devotes three final chapters to culturally appropriate intervention strategies that again strengthen students' awareness, knowledge, and skills.
