Abstract

This article examines the recent contributions in the vocational psychology and counseling psychology literature in the areas of multicultural and career assessment. The foundational skills that are essential for culturally competent assessment are presented, and a process model for culturally appropriate vocational assessment with ethnically diverse individuals is presented. The components in the model include culturally encompassing information gathering, culturally appropriate consideration of assessment instruments, culturally sensitive administration, and culturally appropriate interpretation of the data. Issues relevant in the vocational assessment process with ethnically diverse populations and professional considerations are reviewed at each stage of the culturally appropriate career assessment model.
