Global Perspectives

 The purpose of the Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development’s Global Perspectives series is to provide a forum for research and applications within an international context. Global Perspectives may include research articles conducted by international scholars in their home countries or research articles conducted by domestic researchers with international study samples. The series will also highlight manuscripts that introduce and advance theoretically and conceptually grounded teaching and applied practices that reflect the experiences of counseling and development globally. JMCD welcomes international collaborations and contributions from early career to senior scholars and practitioners. The promotion of scholarly work in this series is intended as a win–win experience for series contributors and the JMCD readership. The long-term goals of this series are to facilitate provocative and vibrant across-time conversations, and to further understanding and appreciation of multicultural counseling and development from international perspectives. 


  Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development Expansion

 It is with great enthusiasm that we announce the Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development’s (JMCD) expansion from 64 to 80 pages, effective January 2015. Throughout the years, there has been much expressed sentiment about the need to expand JMCD to provide more space to publish multicultural scholarship. Not only does expansion provide more space for our author’s, it also provides more support for the publication of multicultural scholarship overall. More voices will be heard as more pages are provided. The JMCD editorial team is appreciative of the support provided from the Association of Multicultural Counseling and Development (AMCD), our editorial board, Consulting Elders Council, authors, and our readership. These collective efforts have ushered in a new phase in JMCD’s history and keeps the journal on par with contemporary publications.
