Description

The purpose of this study is to add the voices of international counselors in training to a larger conversation in the counselor education field regarding issues of privilege, power and oppression and how these issues impact us as practitioner. Students in the Culture Centered Counseling course at the University Putra Malaysia were invited to participate in a writing activity modeled from the narrative project from the Dulwitch Centre, Adeline Australia, An Invitation to Narrative Practitioners to Address Privilege and Dominance (Raheim, et al., n.d.). There is minimal research available on how the topics of privilege, power and oppression is presented and discussed in counselor education programs from a non-Western perspective. Preliminary results of narratives created by the students will be discussed.
