Integrating Social Activism into Multiculturally Competent Counselor Training.
Victorson, David; Doninger, Gretchen
Much has been written about how counselors can become more multiculturally competent in their research, practice, and academic training. To date, great changes have taken place in the integration of multicultural issues into coursework, publications, and research. The next step for counselors is to include that of social activist along side of the other roles. This paper argues the need for structured, social activism training to be included in the curricula of graduate programs in counseling psychology. Several points are addressed that provide support for this position. One point stresses an understanding of the political forces and events that affect lives. Another stresses that culturally competent counselors have a role to play in social activism. A proposed social activism-training example to be integrated into counseling and psychology curricula is also presented. (Contains 14 references.) (Author/JDM)
