I am delighted to be being part of the 2012 bloggers for Counselling Connect.
To start the first blog of 2012, I am sharing a paper titled, A Critique of Multicultural Counselling Competencies and Implications for Counsellor Education By Pamela Knelsen Olfert.
According to the author, this project is an analysis of multicultural counselling competencies (MCC). This project explored how MCC can be incorporated effectively into counsellor education and how multicultural learning can be encouraged across different learning domains. This was done by exploring the background of the MCC movement and reviewing MCC models, as well as looking at current literature on MCC and counsellor education and examining studies related to MCC and counsellor education. It was found that many elements could affect the development of MCC. It was also found for counsellor training programs to be effective multicultural curriculum needs to be multi-faceted and infused and supported in all areas of the program.
