Description: Understanding each client’s individual culture is an integral piece of multiculturally competent counseling, yet counselor training programs silo clients into two categories: privileged and marginalized. This reductive categorization of BIPOC as a monolith invalidates clients’ lived experiences, intersectional identities and leads to culturally incompetent counseling. This session focuses on a pedagogical framework that fosters cultural competence in students by dismantling this monolith myth through applied coursework.
