PSD7035 Ethnographic Placement

Course Description

Students are placed for eight hours per week in settings, generally schools or community mental health agencies, which allow them to engage in an ethnographic observation/participation of individuals and groups that are culturally different from the students in significant ways. The ethnographic placement is designed to enhance clinical and cultural competence by broadening the student’s exposure and appreciation of “others,” while gaining an in-depth understanding of his or her own assumptions, stereotypes, and biases.
