Abstract: The purpose of this study was to determine the extent to which professional counselors' perceive themselves to be multiculturally competent and to determine what factors comprise the multicultural competencies developed by the Association for Multicultural Counseling and Development (AMCD). A comparison was made between the self-perceived multicultural competence of professional counselors who graduated from programs accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) and those who graduated from non-CACREP accredited programs. The relationship between the adequacy of multicultural training that counselors received and their self-perceived multicultural competence was examined. Finally, the types of training experiences and demographic characteristics that may be related to the self-perceived multicultural competence of professional counselors were considered and analyzed.
