Abstract

Primary Objective: To broaden the conceptualization of marginalization to go beyond the limited range of groups that currently receive clinical/research attention and to inform ethical practice in order to contribute to the clinical competence of mental health practitioners working with marginalized populations. Secondary Objectives: To present an approach to counseling people from marginalized groups; To highlight the particular flexibility needed when applying mainstream counseling techniques and skills to a population other than the one they were intended for.
