This chapter addresses three limitations to the current state of thinking and research on the topic of multicultural counseling. One, theories of multicultural counseling have not been integrated within a broader theoretical framework of counseling research and practice. Two, research in multicultural counseling has not been grounded in or directed to explain the process and outcome of psychotherapy; and three, research in multicultural counseling has not been adequately targeted at explaining or treating problems that affect racial and ethnic minority populations. The chapter also points to some potentially fruitful areas in the field of multicultural counseling, including opportunities for further theory development, research program development, and interventions that may help ameliorate conditions of injustice and human suffering.

Keywords: multicultural counseling; psychotherapy; process; outcome; ethnic racial minorities; research.
