Theory and Research on Stereotypes and Perceptual Bias: A Didactic Resource for Multicultural Counseling Trainers

Theories and selected research on stereotyping and cognitive automaticity are presented as a resource base for multicultural counselor educators. Three multicultural competencies are identified: (1) personal beliefs/attitudes; (2) cultural knowledge; and (3) multicultural skills. The objective is to make self-awareness of covert prejudicial attitudes and beliefs easier to acknowledge by establishing that perceptual biases involving racial categories are normative and apply to almost everyone. Multicultural trainers can use existing scientific evidence indicating that perceptual processes that take place outside of conscious awareness give rise to biased perceptions involving racial or ethnic categories.
