Analysis of Multicultural Counseling Articles Published by the American Counseling Association July 1980 to June 1996.
Vargas, Elide M.; Veach, Laura J.
The purpose of this research was to assess and analyze the frequency and trends of multicultural counseling articles in thirteen journals published by the American Counseling Association (ACA) from 1980 to 1996, with specific focus on four racial and ethnic groups prevalent in the United States: African American, Asian American, Latino, and Native American. The results of the research show that all thirteen journals published articles on racial and ethnic groups; however, the greatest number of these articles were published by the "Journal of Counseling and Development" and the "Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development." The majority of these articles dealt with racial and ethnic groups in general, followed by articles with specific focus on African Americans. Less attention was given to Latinos, Native Americans, and Asian Americans. There was a balance between empirical and nonempirical contributions. The subject focus of all the articles concentrated mainly on counselor training issues. (Contains 24 references and 3 tables.) (Author)
