CTCN 509 Social and Cultural Foundations 4.5 Credits

This foundational course focuses on the multiple dimensions to developing knowledge, awareness and skills in multicultural competency and cultural humility as professional creative arts therapists and counselors. Theories of multicultural counseling, identity development, psychosocial theories and anti-oppressive intervention strategies in working with diverse populations are considered. Implications of culture, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, social class, ability and religion within-group, as well as between-group cultural differences, are examined within the context of mental health care. The course centers on the ongoing examination of personal/institutional prejudice, bias, oppression and discrimination as it relates to becoming an anti-oppressive and social justice-informed practitioner.
