The purpose of this project is to enhance the counselling services offered to diverse clients by supplying counsellors-in-training with a professional development resource that combines the best available outcome evidence and applied clinical wisdom, with the most current cultural adaptation frameworks. A comprehensive literature review was conducted of the theory and practice of culturally-adapted psychotherapy. This review was then used to develop an interactive and user-friendly online workshop, illustrating how abstract ethnocultural knowledge can be transformed into concrete, culturally-responsive therapeutic practices. To begin, a brief overview of the relevance of culturally competent counselling within the Canadian context is provided, followed by an outline of several major cultural competency theories, guidelines, and therapeutic adaptation frameworks. The main component of the workshop contains a discussion of numerous applied recommendations grouped under six domains, as established by Hwang's 2006 Psychotherapy Adaptation and Modification Framework, including integration of client cultural beliefs into counselling, improving communication, and providing a cultural orientation to therapy. Each domain is further subdivided into several sections, which are illustrated with ample applied examples and strategies. The project is concluded with a discussion of its strengths and limitations, as well as of expected areas of future research within culturally competent counselling. An appendix presents: "From Awareness to Practice: Bringing Culture into the Counselling Room."
