Infusing Multicultural and Social Justice Competencies within Counseling Practice: A Guide for Trainers
Sheely-Moore, Angela I.; Kooyman, Leslie
ADULTSPAN Journal, v10 n2 p102-109 Fall 2011
In light of the rapidly changing demographics of the United States, it is imperative for counselor educators and trainers of mental health professionals to infuse instructional strategies that promote multicultural and social justice (MSJ) competencies for trainees. The purpose of this article is to translate MSJ-based teaching strategies within counselor education into community-based, mental health services training for practitioners. These strategies are discussed within the framework of adult development and learning. Although the strategies are effective across the lifespan of development, specific adaptations to the proposed strategies are considered based on the age and developmental focus of the trainees.
