Unique challenges prevent African Americans from entering into counseling relationships. Furthermore, fear of discrimination and racial trauma in counseling settings make seeking a culturally competent counselor difficult. One theoretical approach, Critical Race Theory, can be used to support counselors in navigating difficult conversations about racism and trauma with clients. Implications for practice are provided to increase the opportunity for dialogue about racism in the clinical setting.
