Week Seven – The Counselor as a Human Being
For our final discussion forum activity, go back through your discussion thread postings for the course and collect them into a Word document. I want you to conduct a mini-qualitative research project on them by analyzing their content in order to answer the following two questions.
Imagine yourself as a colleague reading these discussion threads and gathering information to provide feedback in regards to multicultural awareness and competency. What would you say to this individual as to how culturally sensitive and competent this counselor will be with clients he/she works with from various backgrounds. Word the feedback as if you are literally providing it to your colleague.
Now, imagine you are a person from a culture very different than that of the person who wrote all those discussion threads. How would you feel, what would you think, and what would you want to do after reading this counselors perspectives on multiculturalism? If you were very different from this person, what would you tell this counselor that he/she needs to do to help you feel understood and heard?
Use as many words as needed to make your point clearly. Enjoy this self-reflection exercise and provide feedback to one another in your response posts that will both validate and encourage more learning. (Hint, hint… I hope you can see the strategy behind weeks 4 and 5 discussion forums). You have worked hard in this course. May each of you finish well, feeling energized and empowered to continue engaging with others from different backgrounds than you. *IMPORTANT******************************
