Abstract: In this conceptual paper, we address the importance of integrating experiential learning and self-reflection into the training of counselling psychology students, and take the position that these processes are critical in the development of multicultural counselling competencies. As such, the literature on cultural competence in counselling psychology is reviewed. Specifically, the relationship between self-reflection and cultural competence is examined, and different options for learning through experience are proposed, including moving outside of the classroom. We conclude the paper with implications for classroom teaching, highlighting how students and educators alike can benefit from experiential learning and self-reflection.
