Travel Dates: June 29 - July 14, 2018
Spend two weeks in Italy this summer exploring the biological, developmental and social bases of multicultural issues in counseling and psychology. Professor Jairo Fuertes, Ph.D., has been bringing groups of Adelphi students to Orvieto since 2012, letting them explore how culture, history, tradition and language influence psychological development and behavior. This course includes research on assessment, intervention with underrepresented populations, and clinical cases that focus on international populations and underserved sexual and racial groups. Students will also spend several days in Rome visiting the counseling center at Sapienza University of Rome, learning from Italian professionals and interacting with Italian students of psychology. This course is taught at the graduate level, but open to undergraduate students.
Students register for Multi-Cultural Issues in Counseling during Summer Session II (PMH 0507-505, 3 credits) in order to participate in this program. Although most of the work will be done in Italy, there will be a pre-departure class session at Adelphi.
