Guilt societies[ edit ] In a guilt society, the primary method of social control is the inculcation of feelings of guilt for behaviors that the individual believes to be undesirable. A prominent feature of guilt societies is the provision of sanctioned releases from guilt for certain behaviors, whether before or after the fact. Paul Hiebert characterizes the guilt society as follows: Guilt is a feeling that arises when we violate the absolute standards of morality within us, when we violate our conscience.
A Basic Misunderstanding of Multiculturalism in the Helping Professions References Introduction In my multicultural competencies course for graduate students, I used to start the course by asking my students a simple question. As a multiculturally competent supervisor, I can usually tease out the subtle biases and value systems of other professionals and link my observations to supervision.
We discuss these issues and understand the larger issues premising the need for competencies. So for we helping professionals, there is a difference between a helping professional who is culturally competent and one who is not.
But another necessary question was the perspective of the client. Does the client see a difference and would the client care of these differences? The answer is that multicultural competencies are more than just additive to the helping professional.
It is unfair for critics to say that multicultural competencies just add a little to the value of the therapeutic relationship. Multicultural competencies are not just additive, they are transformative to the helping professional and to the therapeutic relationship. Multicultural competencies are critical to the therapeutic relationship just as much as a theoretical orientation.
Just as much as one could not practice therapy or counseling without a theoretical orientation psychodynamic, cognitive, humanisticone could not practice therapy or counseling without multicultural competencies. The research and scholarship on multicultural competencies and orientations toward diversity and multiculturalism generally show that helping professionals who are culturally competent and who address diversity issues e.
In the end, I stopped offering this question because it engenders a false dichotomy. Good helping professionals are ones who are theoretically competent and multiculturally competent and oriented they have an interest in diversity and an interest in growing to learn more about themselves as cultural beings ; who have clinical experience with diverse clientele; and who have a good awareness of their own worldview, biases, and expectations for counseling and for the client.
Multicultural competencies are part of every step of the therapy process. From intake, to assessment, to building the relationship, to interventions, to assessment, to termination, multicultural competencies are implicated and necessary throughout every step.
The need for multicultural competencies is present from the first contact with a client. For instance, imagine being a male therapist walking into the waiting area to greet a client.
The new client happens to be a Muslim woman wearing a hijab head covering.
What can the therapist assume about the client and what may he not assume? How might this misstep be addressed in a culturally congruent manner? Finally, if the therapist were to address it, what might he expect the client to do with and for him in that moment?
Multicultural competencies are implicated as necessary skills from the very first instant of therapeutic contact. Why Multiculturalism and Multicultural Competencies Counseling is about the ways in which we help people tell their lives.
Over repeated telling, we learn the narrative and arcs of the lived experiences. Simple in some ways, but as any helping professional knows, we are involved in the most complex and dynamic human relationships, because not only are we attempting to learn about the client but we are simultaneously helping them change.
Multicultural competencies are not necessarily a distinct theory but rather they represent a transtheoretical approach to working with clients.
How might one create better relationships with the client?
How might interventions be better adapted for the client? How might the working alliance be strengthened? Multicultural competencies and orientations are also helpful for the counselor in developing a greater awareness of oneself and oneself as a cultural being in an interaction with another cultural being.
Simply stated, multiculturalism also provides the counselor with a framework to better understand cultural issues that may impact the therapy relationship.
The counselor benefits from a dual exploration of these issues with the client.I. Albion’s Seed by David Fischer is a history professor’s nine-hundred-page treatise on patterns of early immigration to the Eastern United States.
