Assessments in a Multicultural Context

Presented by

Clinton D. McNair, Ph.D.

Seattle University


The impact of cultural, ethnic, and racial variables for the assessment, diagnosis, treatment, service delivery, and development outlook for working with culturally diverse populations. ---Reference: Freddy A. Paniagua and Ann-Marie Yamada, (Editors 2013)

---3 factors that impact the interview of a clergy candidate in a cross-cultural situation.

Value differences

Autonomy issues

Religious concerns


  • To explore the shift from the old paradigm that places members of a minority group in limited racial and ethnic categories, to examine the way that many of these stigmatized individuals belong to more than one minority group, resulting in stigmatization not only outside of their identified primary group, but also within it.

  • Reference: Reginald Nettles, Ph.D. and Rochelle Balter Ph.D., J.D., (Editors 2011)


---The shift from the old multicultural Paradigm to a modern definition of minorities.

Old paradigm places members of minority groups in limited racial and ethnic categories.

We must recognize that many of these stigmatized individuals belong to more than one minority group.

Within a minority group members may be members of more than one category within that larger group.


3 To explore looking outside the standard assessment instruments design, and their interpretations to new models, instruments and interpretations designed for multicultural assessment practice in a multicultural context.

---Reference: Freddy A. Paniagua and Ann-Marie Yamada, (Editors 2013)


---There are 4 or more groups of diverse clientele throughout the world that clinicians are being asked to assess.It is now recognized that diversity extends beyond race and ethnicity to reflect characteristics or experiences related to (a) gender (b) age (c) religion (d) disability (e) socioeconomic status (f) interracial/intercultural identities (g) indigenous populations (h) military personnel and their families


4 To explore the universality of internalized oppression of marginalized groups in the U.S. and corresponding mental health and psychological manifestations as they relate to multicultural assessments.

---Reference E.J.R. David Ph.D. (Editor 2013)


What is meant by the Universality of internalized oppression of marginalized groups in the U.S.?

E.J.R. David and Annie O. Derthick (2013) concluded that internalized oppression exists among many marginalized groups in the U.S. (and in many parts of the world where oppression of a group by a dominant group occurs). It is commonly understood by those who study the subject that oppression occurs when one group has more access to power and privilege than another group, and when that power and privilege is used to maintain the status quo.
