PSD7047 Multicultural Awareness in Professional Psychology

Course Description

This part of the IPS curriculum focuses on theories of diversity and the history of racism and other “isms.” Students examine the effects of power and privilege—or lack thereof—on psychological functioning. Students will be encouraged to develop self-awareness and a heightened sensitivity to their own values, cultural identity, and biases to understand how these serve as both resources and barriers to the effective delivery of mental health services to diverse populations.
