Multicultural Education and Training in Rehabilitation Counseling Education Programs
Donnell, Chandra M.; Robertson, Stacia L.; Shannon, Cozetta D.
Rehabilitation Education, v23 n2 p193-202 2009
Racial-ethnic backgrounds of rehabilitation counseling clientele have become increasingly diverse. Additionally, the current emphasis on globalization and international rehabilitation in diverse communities requires educators to examine teaching methods and strategies to best train rehabilitation counselors working within these complex diverse populations. Rehabilitation counseling training programs have begun to embrace multicultural practices as they are implemented in accreditation standards; however, implementation of multicultural practices in educational programs is still unclear. The purpose of this article is to define multicultural education and its role in rehabilitation counselor education. A multifaceted approach to multicultural education in rehabilitation counseling education will be presented. Implications for rehabilitation counselor education programs will be discussed.
