Wolfgang, Jeff; Frazier, Kimberly; West-Olatunji, Cirecie; Barrett, Joe
Online Submission, Paper presented at the annual convention of the Association for Counselor Educators and Supervisors (ACES) (Nashville, TN, Oct 26-30, 2011)
As counselors turn their attention to child-based counseling, there is a need to apply the core tenets of the discipline of counseling to young children and incorporate cross-cultural issues into clinical competence. Using Multicultural Counseling Theory (MCT), the authors discuss conventional approaches to providing clinical interventions for young children (ages 0-5yrs) and offer pedagogical suggestions for advancing the profession of counseling with this population. The authors articulate new roles for counselors and provide a framework for foundational counseling research in this area.
