Cultural Competency Guidelines

The Association for Multicultural Counseling and Development (AMCD) has provided a Multicultural Counseling Competencies document. Culturally competent counselors regularly review these guidelines to ensure that they are engaging in culturally competent and ethical counseling practices.
For this Discussion, review the AMCD Multicultural Counseling Competencies. Note the strengths and limitations of the guidelines and consider two recommendations you would make to improve them. The “Multicultural and Social Justice Competencies” are attached in a link here.  These were approved in summer, 2015. These can be a resource as you write your posts.

With these thoughts in mind:

Post by Day 3
