Course Overview

Effective multicultural work requires practitioners to develop continuing awareness of self, increased knowledge and practical understanding of others’ worldviews and consequent behaviors, and ever changing skills for engaging increasingly diverse clients, colleagues and agencies. This class offers the opportunity to study cultural identity and its implications from theoretical, experiential and personal perspectives. It addresses impacts and interactions of multiple cultures on individuals and groups. It examines power in relation to cultures. It takes a meta-model approach to identity, and views people as being multifaceted, potentially members of multiple cultural/language groups, including racial, ethnic, regional, deaf, gay, transgender and more.
