Conference Strand

Teaching, Training, and Supervision

Abstract

In this highly diverse society, counselors-in-training require the crucial active listening skills that enable them to develop a deep empathic understanding of the other. The research findings may influence other counselor education programs to engage in similar interventions with their students. The researchers recommend that in addition to courses on multicultural counseling, the basic skills course be used as a laboratory to put aside judgmental thinking in order to embrace the perspective of the other.
