About This Course

This is a non-contact HOME STUDY training based on a live training that was recorded.

This presentation celebrates the diversity that is present within the human experience that is present whenever an individual presents for counseling.  The clinician working with individuals must possess an awareness of his or her own personal biases, beliefs, and attitudes towards culture and traditions, while respecting and honoring the diversity of all individuals.  This presentation approaches diversity from the perspective of intersectionality, which recognizes diversity is understood as a continual joining and integration of various factors including but not limited to race, ethnicity, sex, gender, socioeconomic status, and others.  Multicultural competence has been adopted as a tenet of the Code of Ethics for social workers, professional counselors, and many other professions, necessitating a need for understanding how to provide intentional advocacy for diverse individuals.  This presentation provides an examination of the cultural and ethnic variables in the human experience and their impact on the counseling process.  This presentation will address a range of aspects of diversity, culture and identity and will provide a framework and strategies that can be applied to various populations, issues, and contexts, specifically therapy with African Americans.  This presentation will provide the attendee with opportunities to advance knowledge and understanding about diversity and social justice in a way that assists the attendee in providing services in a competent ethical manner.
