Counseling Contemporary Multiple Heritage Couples, Individuals and Families

 

The multiple heritage population is one of the fastest growing segments of the U.S. population, so it is important that counselors become aware of and develop a greater knowledge and understanding of this population. This course examines the lives of contemporary multiple heritage couples, individuals, and families, including trans-racial adoptive families.

A multicultural counseling competency framework is applied to discussion and recommendations of counseling intervention with this population.
