Multicultural Issues in Mental Health Work is a counseling course designed to introduce students to theoretical models of diversity
and identity development. Students will examine theories of Race, Ethnicity, Class, Sex, Gender, Sexual Orientation, and Ability, as
a means of understanding the development and utility of one’s own belief system, as well as the beliefs, values, and experiences of a
diverse client base. This course will address the notion of ‘difference’ within the therapeutic hour and examine the role and
influence of systemic factors within the counseling process. The goal of this course is to assist students in becoming more multiculturally
competent psychoanalytic counselors by increasing awareness and insight, and by enhancing clinical skills. ACAP &
