Counseling and Psychoanalysis: Advancing the Value of Diversity
Hansen, James T.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v38 n1 p16-26 Jan 2010
Arguably, the defining feature of the counseling profession is an appreciation for human diversity. Early counseling movements emphasized individual diversity, while multiculturalism and social justice highlighted cultural diversity. The author maintains that contemporary psychoanalytic thought can supply a needed intraindividual diversity perspective, which has been suppressed by dominant ideologies.
