Oftentimes, Pacific Islanders are lumped with Asian Americans leading to inaccurate perceptions. Counselor educators and supervisors must increase their knowledge, skills, and awareness of marginalized groups to improve the cultural competence of their students and supervisees. This program will focus on examining the various strengths and challenges of Pacific Islanders and exploring how to provide culturally competent services. There will be an emphasis on how to integrate this information in the classroom and supervision.
