To Kill a Mockingbird, the story's narrator, Scout Finch, notes a
piece of advice that came to her from her father and which recurs
throughout the book: "One time he said you never really know a
man until you stand in his shoes and walk around in them."
This simple idea, that true understanding of the other-in
Scout's case the mysterious and initially frightening neighbor,
Boo Radley-requires that we develop a capacity for empathy.
This concept is central to many of the critical issues that we face
both as individuals and as a society. In this issue's cover story,
"In Another's Shoes," Karen Leggett explores how international
experience included in the curriculum of counseling and psychology programs is helping students to learn to have a cultural
awareness that can help to build empathy in clinical settings.
Norman Epstein, director of the Couple and Family Therapy
Program at the University of Maryland, explains in the article that
putting counseling students into unfamiliar places where even
some of their most basic assumptions about behaviors and values
are not the accepted standard can be eye-opening. "We teach
cultural sensitivity [in class] but this is firsthand experience."
He tells his students to "be sensitive to people's communication
styles. Meet people where they are." The very foreignness of the
situations can often help students strip away some of their own
preconceptions and be more in tune with the culture of the other.
Cecil Thomas, director of global affairs at the Adler School
of Professional Psychology in Chicago, concurs that they want
students' international experience to inform their professional
practice whether it is at home in Chicago, or anywhere else.
Thomas expects newly trained counselors to be "nimble enough
to work with different populations in a culturally competent
manner and also have a better understanding of their own individual identity."
In her novel, Lee took Scout, and her readers, on a journey
from the loving home of her family into a more grown-up world
of contradictions, fears, noble motivations, and ignoble prejudice. At the end of the book, the littlest Finch says to her father,
Atticus, of her neighborhood bogeyman, Boo Radley, "he was
real nice." "Most people are, Scout," Atticus replies, "when you
finally see them."
