Competent Counseling for Middle Eastern American Clients: Implications for Trainees
Soheilian, Sepideh S.; Inman, Arpana G.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v43 n3 p173-190 Jul 2015
The authors used a factorial multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) to determine whether counselor trainees' group differences on measures of multicultural competence, empathy, and multicultural counseling self-efficacy (CSE) when working with Middle Eastern American (MEA) clients were moderated by trainee race. Two hundred and fifty-six trainees responded to 3 different clinical vignettes that gave information on clients who had varying degrees of MEA characteristics. MANOVA results revealed a significant main effect for trainee race. Follow-up analyses demonstrated that trainees of color reported higher multicultural competence and multicultural CSE than White trainees.
