12 Scopus citations


Multicultural elements and issues are a vital part of effective counselling supervision. However, traditional counselling supervision has not provided a conceptual framework that integrates multicultural issues. The purpose of this paper is to provide a four-step model for the development of multiculturally competent counsellors. The four-step model includes: (a) developing cultural awareness of the counselling supervisor; (b) exploring the cultural dynamics of the counselling supervisory relationship; (c) examining the cultural assumptions of traditional counselling theories; and (d) integrating multicultural issues into existing models of supervision.
