Research on the education and professional training of emerging-psychologists has significantly increased during the past three decades. Various evidence-based, clinical-scientist- and science-practitioner models have been developed to aid in the professional training of emerging psychologists in order to develop competence in different practice domains such as counselling/therapy, psychometric evaluation, forensic analysis and coaching psychology. Coaching psychology has emerged as a rapidly growing practice domain in both uni- and multi-cultural contexts, however limited scientific research exists relating to the training and development of emerging psychologists as coaches within multi-cultural environments. As such, the presentation aims to evaluate the experiences of emerging psychologists relating to an evidence-based training methodology in order to provide structured guidelines for the development of a multi-cultural coaching training programme. The aim is to present specific strategies employed and methodologies utilised in the development of multi-cultural coaching competence of emerging psychologists as part of their formal academic training.
