In 2014, he was selected to chair the Special Committee on the Multicultural Counseling Competencies commissioned by the Association for Multicultural Counseling and Development, a division of the American Counseling Association. This committee was charged with updating the Multicultural Counseling Competencies developed by Sue, Arredondo, and McDavis (1992). This work led to the development of the Multicultural and Social Justice Counseling Competencies, which were endorsed by the AMCD Executive Council on June 29, 2015 and the American Counseling Association on July 20, 2015.
