Experiential Training To Develop Culturally Competent Counselors.
Watson, Albert L.; Kapadia, Niloufer
Traditionally, counselor educators have employed didactic methods and a Western European world view to train students who will serve minorities. This article proposes a curriculum approach which specifies the desired competencies expected of culturally sensitive, competent, multicultural counselors through experiential methods during training. To provide an example of a balance multicultural counselor training effort, the following components are specified: (1) 20 multicultural counseling competencies for use in multicultural counselor training; (2) 26 curriculum objectives instrumental in developing desired multicultural counseling competencies; and (3) a variety of experiential training methods valued in increasing multicultural awareness and sensitivity.
