Social and Multicultural Foundations II

A continuation of Social and Multicultural Foundations I, this course expands upon content and processes learned with a focus on application to the practice of culturally responsive, somatic multicultural, social justice counseling. Students will explore the ways that their own cultures and power form their worldviews and how these impact the counseling process and the therapeutic relationship. Students will study the prevalent beliefs, values, and communication styles (embodied verbal and non-verbal) of a wide development of the skills of 'effective' somatic counseling/psychotherapy with clients within, and across, cultures and sociocultural locations. Somatic Counseling students only.Prerequisite: CNSS610
