A Culturally Competent Immersion Protocol: Petit Goâve, Haiti
Streets, Barbara Faye; Wolford, Karen; Nicolas, Guerda
International Research and Review, v5 n1 p1-24 Fall 2015
In the human services professions, cultural immersion experiences help satisfy multicultural training standards established by national accreditation bodies. Immersion in a culturally sensitive manner is necessary as we prepare professionals to work with and serve citizens of the globe. The authors describe an international cultural immersion protocol with a semester-long course component, provide recommendations for curriculum developers who wish to establish similar programs, and summarize outcomes related to cultural awareness. Such information might aid other higher education programs aimed at developing similar protocols for their students.
