Description

As the counseling profession works toward more inclusivity, it has become clear that increased diversity is needed for counselors and clients. To this end, the development and study of Multicultural Counseling have become increasingly important. That study initially focused on a wide range of single cultures that were important to individuals, which is certainly important. But how do we work with an individual who presents with multiple cultural identities? It is now understood that a more complex model is needed: one that acknowledges that we each have primary identifications with multiple cultures and that these identifications commonly lead to relatively stable personal constructs called identities. Intersectionality, a concept allowing us to address multiple cultural and other identities, has begun to appear in counseling and psychology literature. This presentation will explore intersectionality and its applications in counseling research and clinical practice.
