Tadlock-Marlo, Rebecca L.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Idaho State University
Due to the ever growing diversity of school populations in the United States, it becomes increasingly more vital that school counselors are efficient in multicultural counseling. As the significance of effective multicultural competencies increases, so too does the importance of accurately assessing these proficiencies. The central focus of this research was to validate an instrument that assesses the multicultural counseling competencies of school counselors and conforms to standards set by the American School Counselor Association and the Association for Multicultural Counseling and Development. Findings indicate that school counselor multicultural competence is described in a stable four domain model consisting of: Assessment of School Environment, Reflection of Personal Culture, Development of Interpersonal Relationships, and Collaboration. Extensive psychometric properties were also established. By ascertaining this factor structure and the psychometric properties for the instrument assessing school counselor multicultural competencies, school counselors can maintain and further develop accountability to the profession.
