Summary or Abstract : This study explored multicultural competence and working alliance of vocational rehabilitation counseling services through the clients' perspectives. The survey inventories of the Cultural Acceptability of Treatment Survey and the Working Alliance Inventory-Short form for client were modified for vocational rehabilitation service clients and used to measure clients' perceptions of their counselors' multicultural competence and of the working alliance with their counselors. A convenience sample of 53 clients of five regional public vocational rehabilitation service offices participated in the survey. The results indicated differences in perception of cultural acceptability of services, depending on the client's self-identified multicultural group. Specifically, there were different perceptions about the importance of culturally-relevant office decorations, the importance that clients place on staff participation in cultural activities related to the client's self-identified cultural group, perceived importance of the rehabilitation counselor's acknowledgement of discrimination and prejudices faced by the client's cultural group, in perceived importance of the counselor's knowledge inclusion about family roles relative to the client's cultural group, the perceived necessity for more family involvement in rehabilitation counseling, and client satisfaction with their Individual Plan for Employment. Some differences were found based on whether the rehabilitation counselor was perceived as being from the same cultural group as the client (matched). Matched client-counselor pairs received lower client ratings of working alliance. Clients in the matched condition reported a higher perceived importance of the rehabilitation counselor including knowledge about the traditions of the cultural group, compared to the clients in the non-matched group. Clients in the matched group also reported a higher frequency of inclusion of knowledge about cultural traditions during vocational rehabilitation counseling services. The matched group also was more likely to report that being asked about culture was important. Perceived importance of the cultural factors measured in the survey was found to be significantly related to perceived satisfaction. Survey participants who perceived the cultural components as important were dissatisfied more often when the important cultural components happened less frequently. Conclusions are limited by small n size for some cultural groups. Implications for culturally competent rehabilitation counseling services and limitations of the study are discussed.
