Globalization and Counseling: Professional Issues for Counselors
Lorelle, Sonya; Byrd, Rebekah; Crockett, Stephanie
Professional Counselor, v2 n2 p115-123 2012
Scholars have examined globalization for many years in terms of its impact on individuals, but it remains a concept not often discussed in the counseling literature. As counseling transforms from a Western-based practice to a global phenomenon, it is important to understand professional counseling within an international and multicultural context. In this article, the ways in which the process of globalization are currently impacting the field of counseling, implications and future research directions are examined. Global mental health and wellness, culture, and access and structural limitations are also presented.
