ED 721 - Advanced Multicultural Perspectives

This course is a continuation of ED720. It continues the focus on the awareness, knowledge and skills phases of multicultural-identity development and cultural competence. An in-depth study of dimensions of diversity (e.g., race, ethnicity, SES) and oppression (e.g., racism, discrimination, ableism etc) and how they relate to mental health is provided. Students examine the impact of being a cultural/ethnic minority in the United States. Students continue to analyze how “who they are” informs their professional practice as culturally competent human service providers. Students will continue to learn skills needed to provide services to individuals different from themselves. This is an introductory course in the Psy.D. program.
