Abstract and Keywords

This chapter provides an explanation of the influence of race and ethnicity in education and training in professional psychology. The linkage between this diversity and power in the trainer-trainee relationship serves as the superordinate theme. The authors organize the chapter around nonabusive and abusive uses of power, interlaced with specific dynamics and examples related to the aforementioned diversity dynamics. Methods for developing culturally competent trainer-trainee relationships are discussed, as well as the difficulties a trainer might encounter with power dynamics when working with a trainee with problems of professional competence. The importance of a healthy trainer-trainee relationship is stressed in regards to a positive trainee outcome, both within and beyond a graduate program in professional psychology.

Keywords: race, ethnicity, professional development
