Abstract

The growing concern with ethnocentrism in applied psychology, combined with international global communications, business liaisons, and economic forces has increased an awareness of the need to expand psychology's focus. This article outlines some of the philosophical and practical concerns regarding the maintenance of an ethnocentric perspective. Western theoretical approaches to treatment and training espouse values which may nor be applicable to non-Western students and clients. Training designs are summarized, and multicultural counseling competencies are discussed. (C) 1997 Elsevier Science Ltd.
