Use the Multicultural and Social Justice Counseling Competency of counselor self-awareness to:
- Increase awareness of discrimination related to socio-economic status (SES) or sexual orientation among people with disabilities;
- Enhance knowledge of discrimination related to SES or sexual orientation among people with disabilities; and
- Improve skills in interactions with people with disabilities and different socio-economic statuses or sexual orientation.
Explore your own multicultural counseling self-awareness by analyzing case studies featuring a man with low SES who has recently been diagnosed with manic depression and a transgender youth with bilateral, profound sensorineural hearing loss who is planning to attend college. 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.
