Effects of worldview assessment training on counselor's perceived multicultural counseling competence and counseling efficacy

Christine Ann Gibbon, University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Abstract

Worldview has been identified as an important construct across disciplines and within the Counseling Psychology field, particularly in the ethical guidelines mandated by governing associations and in the pursuit of developing multicultural counseling competence (MCC). The limited MCC skills training literature has prompted the development of a training protocol to increase counselor capacity to assess client worldview and to decrease the risk for stereotyping clients according to identified culture group in a rigid and superficial manner. The present study tests the Intentional Worldview Questioning protocol as a training tool for increasing MCC, with a pretest posttest with wait list control group design (n = 25). Analyses of results indicate lack of effect of IWQ training on counselor self-reports of MCC, including a measure of skill. Limitations of the study include small sample size, limitations of measurement, and possible effects of pretesting. Future directions are recommended. ^
