Course Descriptions

COUN 515i: Multicultural Counseling (3 units)

COUN 515i will examine multicultural counseling, with an emphasis on being culturally responsive for work in clinical mental health and school counseling settings. Students will be introduced to academic and experiential activities designed to increase awareness of their own cultural values, biases and personal assumptions in understanding and addressing the needs of underserved and diverse individuals, families and communities. Gender, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, socioeconomic status, generational, and regional identifications both nationally and internationally are among some of the areas explored. A wide range of exercises and reflection activities are used to in order to increase empathy, skills, research, and understanding needed for delivering counseling services to diverse populations.
