Abstract or Summary

What are the influences that shape cross‐cultural  practice by counselors who are identified as part of  a dominant cultural group? This presentation offers  insights gained through research with experienced  white counselors in New Zealand who had strong  commitments to culturally appropriate practice.  Despite experience and commitment, each faced  significant restraints in their practice: social justice  discourses both enabled and restrained their  practice. This presentation focuses primarily on  effects of a cultural safety discourse, and associated  discourses.
