"Every Human Interaction Is A Cultural One"


Mission

The mission of the Florida Association for Multi-Cultural Counseling and Development (FAMCD) is to create a communications link for local and regional groups concerned with minorities, and planning and implementing progress to further the growth of individuals working with different ethnic groups.


This is accomplished through:

    • Building positive human relationships that enhance cross-cultural communication
    • Uplifting human interaction despite tension
    • Learning ways to become culturally competent
    • Networking with other counselors having similar goals

Vision:

Minorities and marginalized populations continue to be discriminated against, mistreated, and underserved—not only by other individuals, but by society as a whole. Our job as multicultural competent counselors, educators, and students is to provide authentic and culturally sensitive care for our clients and individuals within the community. And as we do this, we must continue to advocate for, and alongside underserved populations, using our place of privilege as professionals to shed light on inequalities and unite to make a difference.
