Use of Multicultural Supervision with School Counselors to Enhance Cultural Competence
West-Olatunji, Cirecie; Goodman, Rachael D.; Shure, Lauren
Journal of School Counseling, v9 n16 2011
School counselors are often tasked with addressing the persistent underachievement of many culturally diverse students. However, there is concern that some school counselors lack the cultural competence to effectively intervene with culturally diverse students. This qualitative study investigated the impact of advanced multicultural supervision sessions on three practicing school counselors at a K-12 school. Results suggest that supervision increased awareness of school counselors' biases and provided an opportunity for them to engage in discussions regarding the implementation of culturally appropriate counseling strategies. Implications, recommendations, and areas of future research for counselor education and supervision are also presented. (Contains 1 table.)
