Nilsson, Johanna E.; Schale, Codi L.; Khamphakdy-Brown, Supavan
Journal of Counseling & Development, v89 n4 p413-422 Fall 2011
This qualitative study explored trainees' experiences in an outreach program for refugee/immigrant women to examine if those experiences facilitated the development of multicultural competency and social justice advocacy. Twelve students were interviewed, and their responses yielded 3 categories: development of cultural knowledge, counseling-related skills, and personal growth and reactions. The results indicate that student involvement in an outreach program can strengthen multicultural sensitivity and advocacy engagement.
