The ACA Syllabus Clearinghouse is a joint project of ACA and The Association for Counselor Education and Supervision (ACES). We will maintain syllabi on many topics from may different learning institutions. Our database will be updated continually with new and exciting courses and will provide a valuable resource to all counselors. If you have questions or need assistance please contact the ACA librarian at 800-347-6647 ext. 281 or ACAlibrary@counseling.org
This course will provide an opportunity to reflect on the messages, both positive and negative, that we have internalized about other groups. Upon this reflection, students will be challenged to make new decisions about current and future behaviors and attitudes, in an effort to bring behaviors and attitudes into congruence with professional standards. While we cannot be held accountable for messages embedded in our past, we can and must be held accountable for current and future responses to events in contemporary living and practice. Students will be exposed to current issues in broad diversity constructs: culture, national origin, language, physical appearance and ability, sexual orientation, faith traditions, etc.
