Abstract

This exploratory investigation assessed changes in perceived multicultural therapy competencies and level of White racial identity development following a multicultural course. Results indicate that completion of a diversity-related course appeared to increase trainees' multicultural therapy competencies and to facilitate the adoption of more sophisticated White racial identity ego statuses; these changes remained stable at a 1-year follow-up. Findings from the qualitative analyses underscore the importance of racially and ethnically diveise speakers and panels in promoting multicultural therapy competencies.
