Abstract

This mixed methods study examined changes in self-reported multicultural competence and distress reactions of 32 counselor trainees engaged in service learning. Whereas 3 trainees significantly increased in self-reported multicultural competence, 5 significantly decreased. Trainees who significantly increased in multicultural competence reported less distress; those who significantly decreased reported greater distress. However, changes in multicultural competence appeared to be unrelated to themes uncovered in the qualitative data. Implications for training and practice are discussed. Este estudio de métodos mixtos examinõ los cambios en competencia cultural y reacciones de aflicciõn reportados por 32 consejeros en formaciõn que realizaban prácticas para su aprendizaje. A pesar de que 3 consejeros en formaciõn comunicaron un aumento significativo de su competencia cultural, 5 de ellos reportaron una disminuciõn significativa. Los consejeros en formaciõn que aumentaron considerablemente su competencia cultural reportaron un nivel menor de aflicciõn; aquellos que disminuyeron considerablemente reportaron mayor aflicciõn. Sin embargo, los cambios en la competencia cultural no tenían relaciõn aparente con los temas desvelados en los datos cualitativos. Se discuten las implicaciones para la formaciõn y prácticas.
