Foreign-Born Therapists: How Acculturation and Supervisors' Multicultural Competence Are Associated with Clinical Self-Efficacy
Kissil, Karni; Davey, Maureen; Davey, Adam
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v43 n1 p38-57 Jan 2015
The authors examined the associations between acculturation, supervisors' multicultural competence, and clinicians' self-efficacy in a sample of 153 immigrant therapists currently practicing in the United States. Participants completed a demographic questionnaire and 3 additional questionnaires that examined their levels of acculturation, perceived supervisors' multicultural competence, and clinical self-efficacy. Results suggested that perceived prejudice, not level of acculturation, was significantly associated with foreign-born therapists' clinical self-efficacy. Perceived supervisors' multicultural competence was significantly associated with therapists' clinical self-efficacy. Recommendations for supervisors working with foreign-born therapists are provided.
