We will explore ways in which your culture forms your worldview and how this worldview may impact your engagement in the counseling process. You will learn about the cultural norms of specific groups and explore ways that counseling may have to be modified to better serve them. Students will study theories of multicultural counseling, identity development and multicultural competencies. Material will be delivered in class on blackboard (Bb) or by email and your responses to questions and tasks will require you to be proficient in using Bb and to have an EKU email address.
