Second Language Acquisition: Cultural, Cognitive, and Clinical Considerations for Counseling Practice
Ivers, Nathaniel N.; Ivers, John J., Sr.; Duffey, Thelma
Journal of Creativity in Mental Health, v8 n3 p219-234 2013
The non-English-speaking population of the United States has increased by 140% since 1980 (Shin & Kominski, 2010). To serve this growing population, it is important that counselors increase their multicultural and multilingual competence. Through the lens of multicultural theory and relational-cultural theory, we analyze potential benefits of second language acquisition to counseling practice, such as cognitive benefits and increased access to services. Implications for counseling practice and future research are discussed.
