For this assignment you will consider a diverse group of which you are not a member and that you will be likely to counsel. Select a gathering or event focused on this group in your community to attend (for example, a worship service, a holiday celebration, festival, or open community meeting). Use the Library Guide COUN5336: Researching in Your Specialization Area (Mental Health Counselor) and identify at least four peer-reviewed articles that address the characteristics and concerns and culturally relevant counseling strategies that would be appropriate for this population and your specialization area. In addition, use your text as a reference. Address the following in your assignment: Your aspirations Briefly discuss your aspirations for a counseling position upon graduation (for example, do you hope to counsel in a community mental health center, a career counseling center, a marriage and family practice, an inpatient substance abuse treatment center). Identify a diverse group that you will be likely to counsel, of which you are not a member, and about which you have identified a need to learn more. Cultural Immersion Describe the event you attended and your thoughts and feelings as you prepared to attend the event. Describe the event. Were the people in attendance similar or different from what you expected? Describe your experience at the event. Were you welcomed? In the minority? Comfortable? Interested? Curious? Client Characteristics and Concerns Describe the characteristics and concerns of the group, including the following: What did you observe or learn about the culture at the event you attended? Influence of perceived group membership on stereotypical views of this group, group members' view of themselves, and your view of group members. Historical and current societal discrimination/oppression and its impact on the mental health of members of this group. What other aspects of the client's culture will you take into account in developing cultural sensitivity? Culturally Relevant Strategies Referring to your text, discuss the centrality of communication to counseling, and the aspects of communication style you will need to attend to in counseling members of the cultural group you have selected (for example, language). Discuss at least two culturally supported counseling interventions from the current literature that you would employ in this case in order to promote optimal wellness and growth of the human spirit, mind, and body How do the interventions you propose reflect the Multicultural Counseling Competencies, the principles of Multicultural Counseling and Therapy, and the best practices in your specialization area related to diversity and advocacy? Describe at least one advocacy strategy you could employ at the individual, community, and public policy level Your paper should be 5–8 pages long and should include a minimum of 5–8 references from current peer reviewed journals (one may be your text).
