Orvieto, Italy: Multicultural Issues in Counseling
For students in the master’s programs in General Psychology and in Mental Health Counseling and undergraduate students completing their capstone. This course covers multicultural issues in counseling and psychology. Topics include the biological, developmental, and social bases of multicultural counseling and psychology. Clinical cases will also cover issues with working with international populations and sexual minorities. By having the course outside of the U.S., you will be exposed to a new setting, encouraged to examine yourselves from a different vantage point, and to learn about the every life of a people living in a different country and who speak a different language. This exposure facilitates reflection on the power of culture, history, tradition, and language in psychological development and behavior.
