This skill-based course will further develop the students’ working knowledge and basic competency in multicultural counseling theory and application. For the counseling student who intends to work in mental health, PreK-12 or higher education settings, and who may also be seeking licensure as one or more of the following: LMHC, School Social Worker/School Adjustment Counselor, or School Counselor. To this end, the course will focus on the counselor on both a professional and personal level. Additionally, the course will examine salient client population-specific issues related to the life experiences and world view of the culturally different client and how such experiences impact on the counseling relationship and therapeutic process. Underlying values and assumptions associated with widely used traditional counseling interventions and their appropriateness with disenfranchised populations will be explored. Traditional and nontraditional culturally-consonant counseling approaches will also be discussed.
