African-American. Afro-Caribbean. African. Generally speaking, members of these cultures are all categorized as Black or African American in a collective racial identity. However, people of African descent in the United States have different lived realities that largely depend on their history and the circumstances by which they or their ancestors came to this country. Culturally responsive counselors will be aware of the individual and collective diversity among African Americans, Africans, Afro-Caribbeans, other immigrants of African descent, and Black mixed-race identities. The counselor’s response to the bio-psycho-social-spiritual considerations of the clients' lived realities can affect retention, engagement, and responsiveness to counseling. In this webinar, Dr. Collins discusses the cultures, worldviews, and historical considerations that are important for developing multicultural responsiveness to the diversity of African American and other Black client identities.
1. Identify unique bio-psycho-social-spiritual considerations for counseling African American, African and Afro-Caribbean clients.
2. Recognize the range of diversity within America’s Black identities and discuss implications for clinical practice.
3. Explore counseling strategies for identifying and responding to barriers, prejudices, and processes of unintentional bias and stereotyping.
