Multicultural Approaches in Psychotherapy: A Rejoinder
Owen, Jesse; Leach, Mark M.; Wampold, Bruce; Rodolfa, Emil
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v58 n1 p22-26 Jan 2011
In this rejoinder, the authors address several issues raised by R. L. Worthington and F. R. Dillon (2011) and C. R. Ridley and M. Shaw-Ridley (2011) regarding (a) the measurement of multicultural competencies (MCCs), (b) sampling considerations in multicultural research, and (c) the conceptual frame of multicultural psychotherapy research. The authors challenge the wisdom of exploring MCCs in psychotherapy research and provide a different framework to understand therapists' multicultural effectiveness with clients based on their cultural race/ethnicity. Additionally, the concept of therapists' multicultural orientation or approach is introduced to illuminate the process of aligning with clients about salient cultural issues in psychotherapy. (Contains 1 figure and 1 footnote.)
