Sessions

≪Organizer Abstract≫
As our world gets more globalized and diverse with an increasing need to live in harmony, psychologists have a critical role in providing services to all and serving as social justice advocates. In this symposium, presenters will discuss multicultural issues in counseling in five different countries: Japan, India, South Korea, Turkey, and the US. More specifically, presenters will share the contextual factors impacting the definition of multiculturalism in each country and how multicultural training is integrated into training through coursework, program-related activities, practicums, internships, and research projects. Presenters will provide examples of integrating social justice into the multicultural training and counseling and discuss the ways in which multiculturalism is advocated for the betterment of the society and the world.
