Program Overview

Program Description:

Buenos Aires, Argentina- March 14-21, 2020

This course is designed to provide graduate students in the helping and allied professions with an introduction to multicultural and cross-cultural counseling. We will explore how behavior and experiences are shaped by cultural influences and society in Buenos Aires, a dynamic and cosmopolitan city with a rich multicultural history mirroring the development of the Global South. In the first 10 weeks of the course, the students will learn the fundamental concepts in multicultural counseling through readings, online lectures, and online coursework; we will also meet weekly in an online classroom to discuss the materials and to prepare for the one-week, immersive study abroad experience. During our one-week stay in Buenos Aires, students will gain experiential knowledge of Argentinian culture, its cultural diversity and social justice challenges, and local models of wellness and human development through guest lectures and field visits with local educators, mental health professionals, and other service providers. The course will offer an in-depth examination of what it means – and what it takes – for counselors, educators, and other helping professionals to develop cultural competence and cultural humility in a globalizing context.
