Building Multicultural Competency Through Direct Experiential Contact: An Immersive Case Study Experience, Michael Baltimore

As American society becomes more diverse, counselor training programs have the responsibility for instilling multicultural competencies for counselors-in-training. Teaching multicultural competency is a requirement in professional counseling training programs through graduate level courses with the content infused throughout the program. In this case study approach, students were asked to immerse themselves within a different culture in order to become more aware of their own cultural values, become aware of other cultures and to learn appropriate relationship skills necessary for building helping relationships.

Using The Film Crash To Promote A Multicultural Identity In Students, Richard P. Long Jan 2006

Using The Film Crash To Promote A Multicultural Identity In Students, Richard P. Long

Support Groups For Children Whose Parents Have Deployed To Iraq, James Blount

Perspectives In Learning

Findings among army researchers, many of whom have published their work on Army Knowledge Online (AKO), have consistently shown that children are affected negatively by the deployment of their parents to Iraq or, for that matter, any war. This is cause for great concern as the War on Terror could go on for many, many years to come. However, since it is known in general what the negative effects on children are, strategies and techniques have been formulated to offset the damage done to children. Some of the questions that remain to be answered follow: At what ages are children ...
