Cultural Perspectives in Counseling
This course will provide an overview of counseling approaches and research on culturally diverse peoples, such as: African-American, Asian, Hispanic, Native Americans, women and persons with disabilities. Factors of education, emotion, and behavior will be addressed.
In addition to the description in the catalog, Mercer University’s Social Sciences conceptual framework–the Transforming Practitioner, is embedded throughout the graduate curriculum in School and Community Counseling.
