The State of Multicultural Counseling Competencies Research

Sep 27, 2022 | Psychology


The overall disparities in mental healthcare have been associated with a lack of cultural competency (Holden et al., 2014; Holden & Xanthos, 2009; Shim et al. 2013). Researchers and leaders in mental health care, including the American Psychological Association (APA), have recommended and mandated mental health professionals provide culturally competent care to reduce mental health disparities (APA, 2010, 2017; Arredondo et al., 1996; Sue et al., 1982).
