Canfield, Brian S.; Low, Lori; Hovestadt, Alan
Family Journal: Counseling and Therapy for Couples and Families, v17 n4 p318-322 2009
This article presents an overview of the development and utilization of a cultural immersion experience assignment in courses that focus on expanding the knowledge and skill set of counselors and other counseling professionals for working with culturally diverse client populations. The utility of this method and specific suggestions for its use in three instructional formats: traditional on-campus courses, study-abroad program courses, and 100% Internet-based courses are examined.
