Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Multicultural counselling competence is a theoretical and practical movement about racial, ethnic and cultural differences in the counseling process. The purpose of this study is to review the literature of concepts, dimensions, factors that influence the competency of multicultural counseling and its measurement tools by using a systematic literature review using databases, including science-direct, IPI / Garuda Portal, Emerald, and specifically the Multicultural Development and Counseling Journal (JMCD) using the keywords "multicultural counseling", "cross-cultural counseling" and "cultural awareness, " which obtained 16 articles (N = 263). The results of the review show the concept of competence is diverse, but is still based on the Tripartite model. Moreover, a multicultural counseling competency model based on competency has not been found. Therefore, future research needs to examine competency models that are more comprehensive and based on established competency theories.
