Narrative Theory: A Culturally Sensitive Counseling and Research Framework
Cynthia C. Morris
The purpose of my presentation at the American Counselors Association Narrative Theory: A Culturally Sensitive Counseling and Research Framework convention in April, 2006 will be to share the story of how narrative theory has provided me with a culturally sensitive theoretical framework in my role as both a school counselor and as an educational researcher. I will share my research study that proposed to further the understanding of how the label of learning disability (LD) may affect identity development and particularly how culture may influence that effect.
