Substitute Immersion Assignment
We will not use the Cultural Immersion Project/Paper that requires in-person meetings when we are still impacted by COVID-19. Instead we will use the Project that utilizes a research paper that includes implications for counseling.
Multicultural Topic Paper
Each student will prepare a paper on a multicultural counseling issue. The paper should address an issue of your choice germane to the content of this course that can be gainfully explored within the research traditions of a current multicultural counseling and therapy issue. Examples of topics could be counseling Asian-American students, counseling homosexual students, interacting with parents of a different culture, etc. However, regardless of the student preference, the professor must approve the topic during week 2. Your paper should provide background information on the topic (based on research found in journal articles and your textbook), as well as explanations for how culturally competent counselors can adequately address the counseling issue. The presentation should be 4 to 5 pages not including the reference page
These headings should be covered in your presentation:
a. Relevance of the issue – Why it is a multicultural issue
b. Research specific to the multicultural counseling issue
c. Advocacy considerations/social justice needs d. How you would address needs as a school counselor.
