This course investigates the multiple dimensions related to competent multicultural counseling. Major ethnic groups are studied along with associated counseling approaches. Theories of multicultural counseling and systems-oriented intervention strategies (couple, family, group, and community) are examined as well as the overarching cultural context of relationships, religious and spiritual values, mental and physical characteristics, education, family values, and socioeconomic status. Attention is given to developing awareness of one’s own values, attitudes, and beliefs related to counseling in a diverse society. (Prerequisite: MFPSY5541)
