Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) counselors require training, practice, and consultation strategies to address client-initiated microaggressions and racism in counseling. Utilizing critical race theory in counselor education, the authors offer a counseling skills model, based on Sue et al.’s microintervention concept, to support BIPOC counselor training and supervision. The authors describe strategies all counselors may use to address microaggressions and racism in counseling sessions with relevant ethical considerations. Implications for mental health counselors, counselor educators, and clinical supervisors are provided.
