Title:   Cultural Sensitivity in Child & Family Research/Practice      

Course Number:      CSHD 0262A
Campus: Medford/Somer.   
Room: TBA

Course Description:

This course will facilitate student appreciation of the significance of knowledge about one's own cultural background, identity and related experiences as critical influences on the study of and interactions with others. Centered on children and families, there are two foci: 1) cultural sensitivity in research, and 2) cultural sensitivity in practice.  The focus on research examines culture as a contextual influence on human development and  briefly addresses issues in conducting culturally sensitive research, including theory, methodology, analyses and interpretation. With various media, primarily audio-visual, the focus on practice will examine specific cultural constructs (e.g., race, ethnicity, religiosity) and their impact on interpersonal interactions.
