Abstract

With the increasing growth of diversity and attention to intersectionality within our society, it is more important than ever that counselor researchers intentionally use methods that underscore the complex people we seek to serve. The Association for Assessment and Research in Counseling (AARC), as a division of the American Counseling Association (ACA), is especially committed to promoting diversity through novel methodological avenues and frameworks. Moreover, the AARC Diversity Committee encourages researchers in the field of counseling, and counselor education and supervision, to expand their research praxis to embody inclusive, decolonized, and culturally sensitive research practices. Suggestions and implications for inclusive, decolonized, and culturally sensitive research practices within the scope of counseling research are included.
