Priester, Paul E.; Jones, Janice E.; Jackson-Bailey, Christina M.; Jana-Masri, Asma; Jordan, Edgar X.; Metz, A. J.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v36 n1 p29 Jan 2008
The authors present a content analysis of syllabi from introductory multicultural counseling training (MCT) courses. Results suggest that these courses focus on knowledge of other cultural groups, emphasize the cultural identity exploration of the student at a lower level of training, and almost completely ignore the development of skills. The study revealed that MCT frequently includes groups beyond racial and ethnic minority groups. A broad range of instructional strategies are used, with a handful being used on a frequent basis.
