Poverty is a prevalent experience in America with far-reaching mental health implications. Counselor educators are tasked with preparing counselors to address the unique needs of diverse populations, yet poverty is inconsistently addressed within counselor training programs. In this presentation, we will explore ethical and multicultural considerations for clinical work with clients in poverty and provide examples as to how to integrate this topic into counselor-training programs.
