COUN 5093 - Counseling Diverse Populations


A study in multicultural counseling that focuses on developing theories and strategies that match the individual and cultural background of the client, as well as expanding counseling to include the multiple helping roles of family, community, and cultural groups. The course will serve as an introduction to the literature, concepts, and skills required to counsel people from populations considered diverse. Coursework will emphasize factors of diversity such as ethnicity, gender, social identification, physical challenges (e.g. hearing impaired, learning disabled, etc.) and the appropriate counseling interventions for working with such populations. Cultural identity development theory will also be covered in this course.  Class 3. Prerequisite(s): COUN 5023  & COUN 5033 .
