Research on unconscious bias suggests that white counselors may need ongoing awareness training to accurately assess both symptom severity and causes of mental health issues, particularly for Black clients. In a study with 181 white clinicians and trainees, researchers at Teachers College, Columbia University found that a Black representation of a fictional client named Karl was rated as being less symptomatic than a white or East Asian Karl, suggesting lower expectations for the Black client. Clinicians also were more likely to attribute Black Karl’s symptoms to internal causes, which could lead them to ignore underlying external factors. Similar to past studies, this research in the July Journal of Counseling & Development demonstrates how shifting standards can influence counselors’ perceptions, but because white and East Asian Karl were assessed similarly, the results also suggest that grouping all nonwhites into a “people of color” category may not adequately reflect differences in how racial groups are perceived by white practitioners.

Figures in ACA Journals
Authors bear full responsibility for the accuracy and content of their artwork. See the APA Publication Manual (7th ed.) pp. 225–250 for detailed formatting and style requirements for any artwork. All figures should be submitted at the approximate size they will appear in the journal. A final copy of figure(s) should be submitted with your final manuscript to the journal field editor as specified in each of the above journal guidelines.
Checklist of artwork requirements:
- Any text within the figure should be a minimum of 8 points in size for legibility.
- Artwork should be black only. The use of color in your figure is not acceptable because it will not reproduce. To distinguish different elements in your artwork, use alternate patterns or clearly distinguishable lines (i.e., alternate cross hatching within bar graphs or solid and dashed lines).
- Keep the use of any shading within the artwork to a minimum and do not place type over shaded areas because it will not be legible.
- All abbreviations and symbols must be explained in a figure legend or caption (see APA Publication Manual, p. 229). Figure captions are to be supplied on a separate page from the artwork.
- ACA requires electronic artwork to be at a minimum resolution of 600 dots per inch (dpi) up to 1200 dpi. Halftone line screens should be a minimum of 300 dpi. JPEG or PDF files are preferred. Do not embed artwork within your manuscript, but rather insert a figure callout in text and attach artwork as a separate file with your electronic submission.
- Figure file(s) should be appropriately labeled with author name and/or brief article title for easy identification. (e.g., Smith Counseling Teens Figure 1)
