Summary and Future Directions
In light of the consistently high standards upheld in training students and in the active research program established, it is anticipated that the Center for Cross-cultural research will continue to flourish. There is no other programmatic research on the west coast dedicated to the examination of racial identity and its counseling applications with the goal of helping professionals better understand the psychosocial functioning of, for example, Asians and Latinos, in different socicultural contexts. Similarly, the Center for Cross-cultural research will also continue to serve a unique function by conducting outreach to the surrounding communities.
