Use the Multicultural and Social Justice Counseling Competency of counselor self-awareness to:
- Increase awareness of discrimination based on disability or race;
- Enhance knowledge of disability-related or racial discrimination among people with disabilities; and
- Improve skills in interactions with people with disabilities and different races.
Explore your own multicultural counseling self-awareness by analyzing case studies featuring a Native American woman with disabilities and an African American man with disabilities who has lost his engineering job. Refine your skill of incorporating data into decision-making and action as you increase your awareness of attitudes and beliefs and develop knowledge about underrepresented individuals. The Multicultural and Social Justice Counseling Competencies are critical when working with people with disabilities who are also part of underrepresented groups.
