Abstract and Keywords

As the field of counseling psychology becomes increasingly global in scope, feminist and multicultural contributions are vital to the development of socially just, transnational counseling psychology. In this chapter we focus on (a) the ways in which both feminist and multicultural theory and practice inform and challenge prevailing approaches to transnational and cross-cultural work, in particular by drawing upon Sharon Horne’s experiences with post-communist countries and communities, and Kiran Arora’s work within transnational Sikh communities as a second-generation Sikh woman; (b) the foundational work conducted by feminist multicultural counseling psychologists in transnational contexts and with recent immigrants in the United States; (c) the developmental aspects of education and training in feminist-multicultural (F-M) transnational work; and (d) finally, future directions for F-M transnational counseling psychology.

Keywords: International, global, transnational, advocacy, social justice, feminist multicultural, feminism, counseling, counseling psychology
