An "Afterthought": Counseling Trainees' Multicultural Competence within the Spiritual/Religious Domain
Magaldi-Dopman, Danielle
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v42 n4 p194-204 Oct 2014
Although spiritual/religious identity development is included within multicultural training on the theoretical level, significant gaps exist in counseling trainees' practical preparation for spiritual/religious competence. This grounded theory study explores counseling trainees' multicultural counseling competence within the spiritual/religious domain. Findings reveal that although trainees participated in multicultural counseling preparation, they experienced spiritual/religious training as an "afterthought," and they identified the need for training opportunities that encouraged skill development and exploration and increased self-awareness.
