Cultural Diversity Curriculum Design: An Art Therapist's Perspective
Doby-Copeland, Cheryl
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association, v23 n4 p172-180 2006
This article represents the culmination of a long-standing goal of the American Art Therapy Association's (AATA) Multicultural Committee to propose multicultural curriculum guidelines for use by art therapy educators. Challenges faced by art therapy educators endeavoring to meet the AATA Educational requirements are discussed with an emphasis on presenting strategies for cultural competence course development. The guidelines are divided into critical content areas: program philosophy, faculty preparedness, curriculum content, cross-cultural supervision, and multicultural resources. Readers are encouraged to use the guidelines as a point of departure in the design of coursework and when evaluating their own individual multicultural competency. (Contains 18 resources.)
