Use the Multicultural and Social Justice Counseling Competency of counselor self-awareness to:
- Increase awareness of discrimination based on gender or international cultures among people with disabilities;
- Enhance knowledge of discrimination based on gender or international cultures among people with disabilities; and
- Improve skills in interactions with people with disabilities and different gender or international cultures.
Explore your own multicultural counseling self-awareness by analyzing case studies featuring a woman with disabilities who wants a new career and a woman from Mexico now living in the United States who feels potential employers are discriminating against her. 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.
