Overview

Course Title

Multicultural Issues in School Psychology

Description

This course introduces graduate students to multicultural issues with “multicultural” defined broadly. It examines the theoretical, empirical, and practical literature relevant to racially, ethnically, culturally and linguistically diverse clients as well as issues relevant to gender, sexual identity, and social class. Multicultural issues are explored in terms of their relevance to the development of cross-cultural competencies and the delivery of multiple services provided by school professionals (e.g., assessment, counseling, consultation). Candidates will have the opportunity to discuss multicultural issues within the contexts of families, classrooms, and schools. Issues discussed will be relevant to culturally and linguistically diverse children ranging from early childhood to adolescence. The course is part of the multicultural and bilingual specializations for school psychologists, and the bilingual extension for bilingual pupil personnel.
