Understanding the Contextual Factors that Influence School Counselors' Multicultural Diversity Integration Practices
Packer-Williams, Catherine L.; Jay, Michelle L.; Evans, Kathy M.
Journal of School Counseling, v8 n6 2010
This study explores the contextual factors that influence a school counselor's decision to actively integrate multicultural diversity in his/her work. Through using the Integrating Multicultural Diversity Questionnaire (IMDQ) the effectiveness of multicultural diversity training, the types of multicultural diversity practices that are used with frequency and the challenges experienced and/or anticipated in integrating multicultural diversity practices in educational settings are investigated. Results indicate a significant number of participants do not daily integrate multicultural diversity practices because of a reported lack of skills and support as well as ineffectual pre-service multicultural diversity training.
