PS 3310 - Culture and the Practice of Psychology


This course is an effort to critique the practice of psychotherapy, counseling, psychology research, and applied psychology through the lens of culture. From this critique, students will be given tools to develop sensibilities reflecting a commitment to grow in their understanding of diversity. Concepts such as race, ethnicity, gender, sex, sexual orientation, age, religion, mental and physical abilities, socio‐economics, profession, spirituality, and a host of other ideas will serve as touchstones for discussion and learning. Students will learn to think critically about themselves, their learning process, asking questions and research, and the prospects for making change in this world as well as examine assumptions that underpin the professions and practices of psychology. This course will branch into a myriad of other topics and fields to illustrate its points. Students will participate in active discussions and learn to work the ideas from the course into personal learning.
 Prerequisites: PS 1110  and PS 2160 .
Offered every Fall (4 Credits)
