This course examines the cultural, historical, and sociopolitical factors that shape the worldviews of the client and therapist, and their impact on the therapy process. Students will explore the influence of culture on the phenomenology of distress and learn practical skills for conducting culturally responsive assessment and therapy. Techniques for improving therapeutic engagement and case conceptualization with diverse client populations also will be discussed. Finally, students will also deepen their awareness, knowledge and ability to work with a specific cultural group by conducting a series of experiential exercises, a group presentation, and focused reviews of the literature.
