This qualitative research study analyzed 122 multicultural process events provided by 35 participants in an 11-week training group. Five substantive categories of multicultural process events were identified: observation of multicultural differences, generalizations based on multicultural differences, discomfort associated with multicultural issues, positive feelings associated with multicultural differences, and multicultural turning points. Observation of multicultural differences tended to occur early in the life of the groups and discomfort associated with multicultural issues tended to occur toward the end of the groups. Implications of the results for trainers are discussed.
