Abstract

Training in multicultural education and social justice advocacy are integral to counselor preparation; however, counselors report they do not feel prepared to work with diverse populations upon graduation (Holcomb-McCoy & Myres, 1999). The goal of this program is to introduce an empirically supported service-learning model that engages counselors in-training in working with refugees in the local community. Additionally, the presentation addresses optimal timing for introducing such a challenging and potentially growth-oriented experience.
