A Challenge to Consultation Research and Practice: Examining the “Culture” in Culturally Responsive Consultation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Consultants have a critical role in serving individuals from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds across a variety of settings. For the past 30 years, consultation research has explored these types of variables that contribute to effective service-delivery with diverse individuals. The purpose of this article is to reflect upon the past 30 years and pose two challenges for the next 30 years to consultation researchers. First, I challenge researchers to look more deeply at the “culture” in “culturally responsive practice.” Second, in order to increase the focus of consultation research on these cultural variables, I challenge consultation researchers to consider and encourage new and innovative approaches in research methodology, including qualitative and indigenous research methods.
