The integration of diverse perspectives in counselling practice
Studies in Learning, Evaluation Innovation and Development
This article examines interviews with practitioners and teacher-practitioners who draw from diverse traditions in their counselling practice. Interviewees described areas of commonality and areas of dynamic tensions between the traditions applied. The study examines the ways in which they translated meanings from both contexts. Interviewees appeared, at times, to dichotomise aspects of differing traditions, and at other times, to build effective translations. Implications for educators include the need for teaching and supervision approaches that encourage culturally sensitive and coherent translations.
