The Multicultural and Social Justice Counseling Competencies (MSJCC) were created in 2015 and released in 2016 under the guidance of the Association for Multicultural Counseling and Development (AMCD). The emergence of this model aligns with a paradigm shift in the profession toward a deeper understanding of multicultural counseling and the implications of social justice in the professional setting. Adherence to the Multicultural and Social Justice Counseling Competencies has been encouraged by the AMCD, and as a result the conversation has shifted toward operationalization.

This presentation will provide an overview of the MSJCC model, highlighting unique aspects in relation to contextual variables of history and society. It will focus on providing the audience with practical and tangible methods of implementation and will serve as a guide for taking "the next step" in increasing and enhancing multicultural and social justice competence.

Learning Objectives:

1. Participants will gain knowledge and understanding of the MSJCC model; its individual parts and how they work together.
2. Participants will identify areas in which they feel strong with respect to multicultural and social justice competence and areas in which they can improve.
3. Participants will learn ways to implement multicultural and social justice competencies into practice, within given domain and ecological levels.
