This course is designed to meet the growing demand for culturally competent counseling and human service providers by providing graduate students with a foundation in multicultural counseling. The text provides interpretation, examination, and information on a broad range of cultures and potential views of therapy and treatment. Students are expected to comprehensively evaluate their own ethnic upbringing and belief systems, as well as a broad range of other cultural value systems to enhance their level of awareness, knowledge, and skills. Course material will be experienced through a variety of teaching and learning methods, including: reading, discussion, didactics, class presentation, and experiential activities. This course includes the use of imagery and metaphor within counseling and art therapy settings. Non-verbal symbol systems in arts-based interventions can prove to be extremely effective with diverse cultures and persons with disabilities.
