Introduction to Working Cross-culturally (online or face-to-face)

A professional development unit for counsellors & other allied health professionals*

Presenter: Mary Santiago

This unit provides an introduction to counselling skills with a focus on cross cultural perspectives. Students have the opportunity to develop skills and strategies in working with diverse populations. Using a cross-cultural framework, we explore mental health stressors amongst multicultural populations and the role of the counsellor. Students examine their own cultural identity and apply cross cross-cultural counselling competencies across a range of workshop activities. In considering the client’s culture the counsellor-in-training must understand their own cultural values, and how they shape individual biases and prejudices. An assessment of your own biases is essential to helping people from other cultures. A case study and research essay will form the basis of the unit assessment.
