Engendering Hope
Reconciliation and the
Power of Forgiveness

This chapter concludes with the implications for practice, theory, and methods for the profession and future research as well as comprehensive recommendations for the mental health and higher education programs that focus on training mental health practitioners, scholars, and educators to meet the mental health needs of people of color. A special emphasis is placed on these recommendations as they relate to each chapter theme. Additionally, this chapter will discuss areas of needed research as they relate not only to these ethnic and racial groups but also to gender and the massive intragroup differences. The chapter also includes a discussion of the impact of the racism, sexism, and bias of academic and training programs that exist within higher education institutions and their relative impact on the admittance of people of color into mental health services and their experiences.

The chapter begins with a summary of the significant results and draws conclusions about people of color’s experiences with mental health services through these participants’ personal and professional perceptions and experiences with counseling psychotherapeutic services (as both clients and counselors). This chapter offers ways that my experiences and the experiences of Joshua and Shawn, Wai and Mai Li, Woodro and Lioma, and Angelica and Alexias in their roles as clients and counselors of color can inform methods, theory, practice, research, multicultural counseling, the counseling profession, and future research. In Chapter 9, my coauthors and I offered implications for and recommendations on social justice issues and explain ways that this research can inform researchers, theorists, and practitioners in the areas of advocacy and social justice. Finally, this chapter ends with a call to the mental health profession to consider issuing an apology for the mistreatment and injustice that women and people of color have experienced in mental health.
