Culturally Biased Assumptions in Counseling Psychology
Pedersen, Paul B.
Counseling Psychologist, v31 n4 p396-403 2003
Eight clusters of culturally biased assumptions are identified for further discussion from Leong and Ponterotto's (2003) article. The presence of cultural bias demonstrates that cultural bias is so robust and pervasive that is permeates the profession of counseling psychology, even including those articles that effectively attack cultural bias itself such as Leong and Ponterotto's. Readers are warned to not underestimate the power of cultural bias and cultural encapsulation as generic issues in the profession of counseling psychology. The internationalization of counseling psychology is a struggle to be consistent with the scientist-practitioner model and the scientific foundation of psychology itself.
