Which competencies do you still need to develop more fully? See in Red below Here is the Handout: The following information first appeared in 1992, when it was published simultaneouslyin ACA’s Journal of Counseling and Development and in the Journal of the Associationfor Multicultural Counseling and Development (AMCD). Since that time, themulticultural competencies outlined in the article have become an important part of thecounseling literature and a central aspect of all counselors’ work. For more information about multicultural counseling, we suggest that you make frequentvisits to AMCD’s web site that is located at www.amcdaca.org. In April 1991, the Association for Multicultural Counseling and Development (AMCD)approved a document outlining the need and rationale for a multicultural perspective incounseling. The work of the Professional Standards committee went much further inproposing 31 multicultural counseling competencies and strongly encouraged theAmerican Counseling Association (then known as the American Association forCounseling and Development (AACD)) and the counseling profession to adopt thesecompetencies in accreditation criteria. The hope was to have the competencies eventuallybecome a standard for curriculum reform and training of helping professionals. Cross-Cultural Competencies and ObjectivesI.

Culturally skilled counselors should familiarize themselves with relevant research and the latest findings regarding mental health and mental disorders of various ethnic and racial groups.

Culturally skilled counselors become actively involved with minority individuals outside of the counseling setting (community events, social and political functions, celebrations, friendships, neighborhood groups, and so forth) so that their perspective of minorities is more than an academic or helping exercise. (I need to grow in this area outside the counseling setting)III. Culturally Appropriate Intervention StrategiesA. Attitudes and Beliefs1. Culturally skilled counselors respect clients’ religious and/or spiritual beliefs and values, including attributions and taboos, because they affect worldview, psychosocial functioning, andexpressions of distress.

We have grown to have a wonderful therapeutic relationship.) B. Knowledge1. Culturally skilled counselors have a clear and explicit knowledge and understanding of the generic characteristics of counseling and therapy (culture bound, class bound, and monolingual) and how they may clash with the cultural values of various minority groups.(Yes, Well on my way of Mastering.

I have Latin and Spanish clients who do not feel comfortable discussing their problems or emotions. Even my “proud” Irish American client from Boston has similar issues.)2. Culturally skilled counselors are aware of institutional barriers that prevent minorities from using mental health services. (Yes, same as above)3.

They are able to send and receive both verbal and non-verbal messages accurately and appropriately. They are not tied down to only one method or approach to helping but recognize that helping styles and approaches may be culture bound. When they sense that their helping style is limited and potentially inappropriate, they can anticipate and ameliorate its negative impact. (Yes, Well on my way of Mastering. I am doing this and gaining experience with my Spanish speaking clients from South America.)2. Culturally skilled counselors are able to exercise institutional intervention skills on behalf of their clients. They can help clients determine whether a problem stems from racism or bias in. (Yes, Well on my way of Mastering always learning and growing.)others (the concept of healthy paranoia) so that clients do not inappropriately personalize problems. (Working Progress. I have clients who are black who have a deep resentment towards the white residents. One has claimed being called racial slurs a number of times. I di have a white client who is open to me about how he is a racists and he is resentful towards BLM.)3.

(I am not averse to it, but haven’t used it before, so need to grow and explore this.)4. Culturally skilled counselors take responsibility for interacting in the language requested by the client and, if not feasible, make appropriate referral. A serious problem arises when the linguistic skills of a counselor do not match the language of the client. This being the case, counselors should (a) seek a translator with cultural knowledge and appropriate professional background and (b) refer to a knowledgeable and competent bilingual counselor. (Me not knowing Spanish has created a barrier in treatment with my Spanish speaking client. There are no other Spanish speaking counselors at my agency. However my client and I have made it work and have learned as we go. We have developed a strong therapeutic connection.)5. Culturally skilled counselors have training and expertise in the use of traditional assessment and testing instruments.

Well on my way of Mastering and always being mindful and sensitive. 7.
