Course: PSYC 4950.03 – Theories of Counseling
• Articulate which theoretical orientation they will choose to adopt and explain why. If they select an integrative orientation, they will be specific about which aspects of which theories they are combining, and how those elements logically connect with one another.
• Participate in an immersion experience related to a cultural group different from their own.
• Gather information about cultural issues relevant to a counseling setting through traditional methods (e.g., books, journal articles), as well as non-traditional methods (e.g., posting a request to a counseling listserv). They will understand how to employ these methods in a professional manner.
• Share their understanding of the culture that they are exploring with their classmates through both a formal poster presentation and some additional experiential representation of the culture, such as a language demonstration or a reenactment of a cultural event.
