PSY61230 - Cultural Diversity Training

(1 unit)
Students participate in monthly learning exercises (or “modules”) designed to increase both knowledge and awareness. The course requires exploration of intersecting identities and individual diversity for those who define themselves as part of singular or multiple cultural groups (e.g., an older adult heterosexual woman of Chinese American heritage; a transgender Latino who defines himself as a gay male). The modules offer varying perspectives about cultural identity, normative expectations of cultural engagement (from dominant and minority identified groups), visible and invisible identities, privilege and cultural oppression. Students will develop better self-awareness of the multiple lenses that differentially value aspects of themselves and others, while increasing knowledge about how culture is individually experienced and defined.
