PSY 391 Multicultural Counseling

The course will focus on the effects of culture on the nature and behavior of individuals, their adaptations to institutions and environments, and their relations within and outside of their culture. The impact of concepts like ethnocentrism, stereotypes, racism and prejudice will be explored in-depth to help students understand how they are ever-present, especially during the counseling process. Issues relevant to providing effective multicultural counseling will be explored from a theoretical perspective. The course will provide a solid foundation for an applied course in multicultural counseling at the graduate level.
