Culturally Competent Collaboration: School Counselor Collaboration with African American Families and Communities
Moore-Thomas, Cheryl; Day-Vines, Norma L.
Professional School Counseling, v14 n1 p53-63 Oct 2010
Emerging literature on school-family-community partnerships suggests positive educational and social outcomes for students (Koonce & Harper, 2005; Mitchell & Bryan, 2007). This article discusses the historical and contemporary factors and barriers that affect African American students and their families as they partner with schools and communities. The article explores cultural competence as it relates to effective collaboration and interactions as well as an understanding of the political structures and sociocultural realities of African American students, families, and their communities. Specific models, strategies, and recommendations for school counselors' and counselor educators' effective work with African American students and families within school-family-community collaborations are discussed.
