MFT 236 - Family Therapy and Ethnicity


Semester Hours: 3


Periodically
Ethnicity relates family process to the broader context in which it evolves. Coming to terms with ethnicity for therapists is necessary in order to gain a perspective on the relativity of our belief systems. Cultural groups vary in the emphasis they place on different transitions. Different groups vary as to what behaviors they see as problematic as well as solutions to problems. This course describes the difference between various groups with regard to problems typically presented in therapy. Specific interventions are discussed with the primary goal of helping therapists understand people’s behavior in an ethnic context.
