serves as a critical avenue for scholarship focused on racial, ethnic, cultural, and linguistic concerns.

Announcement: Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development Expansion

 It is with great enthusiasm that we announce the Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development’s (JMCD) expansion from 62 to 80 pages, effective January 2015. Throughout the years, there has been much expressed sentiment about the need to expand JMCD to provide more space to publish multicultural scholarship. Not only does expansion provide more space for our author’s, it also provides more support for the publication of multicultural scholarship overall. More voices will be heard as more pages are provided. The JMCD editorial team is appreciative of the support provided from the Association of Multicultural Counseling and Development (AMCD), our editorial board, Consulting Elders Council, authors, and our readership. These collective efforts have ushered in a new phase in JMCD’s history and keeps the journal on par with contemporary publications. 


The Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development (JMCD) is a quarterly journal of the Association for Multicultural Counseling and Development (AMCD), a member association of the American Counseling Association.
