Bridging Students Multicultural Competency Across Institutions: A Model of Practice

Meredith Drew, Kristin Vincenzes


This model was created between two institutions to provide opportunities for graduate counselor trainees to experience and work with more culturally diverse clients/students. All students were enrolled in Clinical Interviewing/Advanced Skills courses and were required to complete two counseling transcripts. Students completed a brief survey identifying their cultural identity. The instructors used this information to pair students from diverse cultures. Students then engaged in four counseling sessions (each student was in the role of counselor and client twice) via a synchronous technology platform. Students wrote a transcript of the counseling session along with a case conceptualization and analysis of their counseling skills.
