COUN 514 - Multicultural Counseling


3 Credits
While embracing the values of advocacy and social justice, this course will expose students to issues of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, culture, gender, sexual orientation, physical/psychological ability, religion and age as they relate to the counselor, client and counseling process. Throughout the course, the concept of culture will be used as an over-arching term inclusive of these categories. The course will also review how the mental health delivery system is based on Eurocentric traditions that often disenfranchise cultural minorities. Culturally sensitive counseling and advocacy strategies will be introduced to provide students with a conceptual and practical framework for working with diverse populations in a respectful way. 
Prerequisite(s): COUN 540 - Foundations of Counseling  and COUN 541 - Skills and Techniques in Counseling
