Talking the Talk, Not Walking the Walk: Expressions from Underrepresented Students about Their Counselor Education Doctoral Programs
Baker, Caroline Ann
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, The Ohio State University
This qualitative study explored the perceptions of self-identified racial or ethnic minorities about their counselor education doctoral programs in relation to multicultural competence. More specifically, semi-structured interview questions were used to obtain information about their doctoral experiences related to faculty and peer relationships, funding, and academic opportunities. Nineteen participants, males and females representing African Americans, Asian Americans, and Hispanic Americans, comprised the sample for the study; participants were recruited from counseling listservs and through snowball sampling techniques. Six themes emerged from the transcripts: (a) intersectionality, (b) playing the game, (c) individual characteristics and attributes, (d) support, (e) voice, and (f) talk the talk, talk the walk. Implications for future research, as well as counselor education doctoral program recruitment, retention, and policy procedures, are included.
