COUN 522-02 - Issues in Intercultural Counseling & Social Justice

February 14, 2019 - May 23, 2019, Thursday, 7:15pm-10:00pm

A multicultural, global society demands that we examine our view of traditional western psychology and place more emphasis on the role of culture in our practice of counseling. As with other social institutions, history dictates a practice of psychology structured in many ways that encourage and support the dominant value system-heavily influenced by western European traditions. What results is a lack of awareness of ways in which culture, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, immigration; class and gender have shaped our lives and organized our thinking.

Intercultural Counseling and Social Justice is a three unit graduate course designed to develop students’ awareness and skills when working with ethnically/culturally diverse populations. It is intended to bring into their awareness the significance of multiculturalism and its role in our psychological development as individuals and as a group. This course aims to make multiculturalism visible and to offer a multidimensional perspective where cultural issues are highlighted. Bringing culture to the forefront fosters an appreciation of cultures and prepares students to understand and apply a range of effective and culturally sensitive techniques and strategies when they work in various counseling settings and with clients from diverse backgrounds.
