To prepare for this Discussion:

  • Review this week’s Learning      Resources.
  • Think about a few of the      challenges that clients who have a diverse or multicultural background      might encounter in terms of career development.
  • With these examples in mind,      reflect on why it is important for a counselor to engage in      self-reflection and critique traditional career theories when working with      clients who belong to these minority groups.
  • Consider how the developmental      theories described in Chapter 4 might be helpful in understanding the      needs of these clients. Also think about how developmental theories and      racial identity theories might be utilized to address the needs of clients      who belong to different minority groups.

With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 4: a description of how development theories and racial identity theories could inform your work with clients who belong to these minority groups.

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
