Fong, Elizabeth Hughes; Tanaka, Sakurako
International Journal of Behavioral Consultation and Therapy, v8 n2 p17-19 2013
The United States Census bureau projects there will be significant increases in racial and ethnic diversity over the next four decades, in part due to international migration (Guarneri & Ortman, 2009). Due to the increase in culturally diverse populations working within the framework of behavior analysis, clinicians must ensure that they are properly educated and aware of cultural competences. While there have been guidelines established for responsible conduct, and diversity policies, there has yet to be standards to ensure cultural competence in the field of behavior analysis. This article will attempt to define culture, competence and cultural competence, as well as provide recommendations for application and future challenges.
