A Multidimensional Exploration of the Impact of International Experiences on Counselors' Cross-Cultural Awareness
Okech, Jane E. Atieno; DeVoe, Stephen
International Journal for the Advancement of Counselling, v32 n2 p117-128 Jun 2010
Literature on international experiences highlights their significant impact on the development of cross-cultural knowledge and awareness. Using practical examples derived from literature on multiculturalism, the multifaceted dimensions of international experiences are critically reviewed as an essential process for counselors dedicated to utilizing such experiences to enhance their cross-cultural awareness. The authors explore the dimensions of interpersonal and intrapersonal processes, as well as the expanded sense of identity that derives from international experiences. Using materials from the literature and findings from research, the authors expand dialogue on the efficacy of international experiences in contributing to cross-cultural competence.
