SPCL 3850 Cultural Humility in Working with Children and Families

3 hours; 3 credits

This course introduces and reviews the literature on cultural humility and multicultural competence, with a focus on intersectionality, privilege, and systemic oppression. This course interrogates the influence of racist, nativist, Eurocentric, individualist, heterosexual, patriarchal, cisgender, ableist, and sizeist dominant discourses on the emotional, social, and behavioral development of persons living within the United States. Experiential activities and assignments, e-journaling, discussions, and videos will foster development of cultural humility, critical consciousness, and ability to apply course constructs to case material.
