Transformative Learning for Counselor Trainees: Implementation of the Multicultural Immersion Experience Model
Prosek, Elizabeth A.; Michel, Rebecca E.
International Journal for the Advancement of Counselling, v38 n1 p61-76 Mar 2016
In this qualitative inquiry, we studied the lived experiences of counselor trainees who participated in a short-term study abroad program in Dublin, Ireland. It was found that counselor trainees self-reported transformative growth as a result of their cultural immersion. Specifically, counselor trainees identified an increase in cultural self-awareness, other awareness, and global connection. The implications of applying transformative learning theory and the Multicultural Immersion Experience model to guide cultural immersion programs are discussed.
