A Multicultural Competence Model for Counseling Gifted and Talented Children
Levy, Jacob J.; Plucker, Jonathan A.
Journal of School Counseling, v6 n4 2008
This paper introduces a model of multicultural competence targeted at school counselors who work or may work with gifted and talented children. The model is designed as an extension of the Multicultural Counseling Competence framework (Sue, D. W., 2001). The present model outlines three competencies believed to be important to efficacious counseling with culturally diverse children identified as gifted and talented: 1) counselor awareness of one's attitudes, assumptions, and biases about gifted and talented children; 2) understanding the characteristics of, and issues faced by gifted and talented children, and 3) developing appropriate interventions and strategies for counseling gifted and talented children. (Contains 1 table.)
