Culturally Adapted Skill Use as a Therapeutic Alliance Catalyst

Culturally Adapted Skill Use as a Therapeutic Alliance Catalyst Purpose: In this article, I explore how the therapeutic alliance, along with culturally competent and adapted skill use can be positively correlated with treatment outcome when using the ecological validity model as the frame. The ecological validity model refers to the degree to which there is consistency between the environment as experienced by the individual of racial minority status who possesses a disability and the properties of the environment the counselor assumes it has. Method: Based on a comprehensive literature review and theoretical integration, I have provided the readers with a brief review of cultural adaptation, cultural competence, and common factor skills through the structure of the ecological validity model with the purpose of enhancement of interventions to persons of different racial and ethnic backgrounds with disabilities. Results: There is an emerging opportunity in the field of rehabilitation counseling for research and enhanced clinical practice in use of culturally competent-adapted interventions in enhancing the therapeutic alliance through use of the ecological validity model. Conclusions: The ecological validity model provides a theoretical framework for understanding research and clinical implications related to the promulgation of interventions via culturally adapted therapeutic alliance skills. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Rehabilitation Research, Policy and Education Springer Publishing

Abstract

Purpose: In this article, I explore how the therapeutic alliance, along with culturally competent and adapted skill use can be positively correlated with treatment outcome when using the ecological validity model as the frame. The ecological validity model refers to the degree to which there is consistency between the environment as experienced by the individual of racial minority status who possesses a disability and the properties of the environment the counselor assumes it has. Method: Based on a comprehensive literature review and theoretical integration, I have provided the readers with a brief review of cultural adaptation, cultural competence, and common factor skills through the structure of the ecological validity model with the purpose of enhancement of interventions to persons of different racial and ethnic backgrounds with disabilities. Results: There is an emerging opportunity in the field of rehabilitation counseling for research and enhanced clinical practice in use of culturally competent-adapted interventions in enhancing the therapeutic alliance through use of the ecological validity model. Conclusions: The ecological validity model provides a theoretical framework for understanding research and clinical implications related to the promulgation of interventions via culturally adapted therapeutic alliance skills.
