Diversifying Counsellor Education: A Case Study of U.S. Students of Colour
Hipolito-Delgado, Carlos P.; Estrada, Diane; Garcia, Marina
British Journal of Guidance & Counselling, v45 n5 p473-488 2017
Due to limited research on the experiences of students of colour in counselling programmes, counsellor educators are ill-equipped to implement strategies to promote the graduation of students of colour. In this case study, we explored the protective and risk factors for students of colour enrolled in a counselling programme in the Western U.S. Participants identified three protective factors (diversity, faculty support, and family and friends) and three risk factors (balancing family and school, disconnect from programme, and White dominance) that impacted their post-graduate experience. Implications for the retention of students of colour are discussed.
