Abstract
This article discusses the significance of self‐awareness in clinical practice with diverse clients. The extent and ramifications of a journal assignment as a way for students to increase self‐awareness are explored as students poignantly describe their responses when they interacted with individuals from ethnic, racial, and cultural groups different from their own. In essence, students moved from a state of unawareness to varying degrees of self‐awareness.
