Description
This course is designed to promote an understanding of the differences and similarities in the scope of practice of professionals from a variety of healthcare and social service disciplines and how the skills of each can be integrated into effective community-based work with immigrants and former refugees resettling in a Western society. Students will increase their cultural awareness of themselves and others by examining the experiences of people who arrived in the U.S. as immigrants or refugees from a wide range of countries and will gain an understanding of belief systems, values, world views, and the healthcare practices of people from cultures different than their own.
