Abstract

Agnosticism is the belief that human reason is incapable of definitively proving the existence or non-existence of god. Though Agnostics are one of the fastest growing groups in America they still remain almost entirely unrepresented in government, media, and even scientific research. This lack of representation can present significant barriers to the counseling process, and inhibit multicultural competencies within the helping profession. This presentation identifies the demographics of Agnosticism, their associated groups, societal barriers, and discusses Agnosticism’s cultural views of disability. This information is used to shape counseling tools more specifically geared toward the Agnostic community.
