HUS 217 - Diversity in Chemical Dependency Counseling

3 Cr.

This course will address those problems inherent in counseling a person from another culture who has an alcohol or drug abuse problem. Although there are over 1,096 ethnic groups, this course will focus on the five largest (African Americans, Asian Americans, European Americans, Latino/Hispanic Americans and Native Americans) and two growing subgroups of our culture, the elderly and victims of HIV/AIDS. These diverse groups will be examined in terms of their definition, history, demographics, patterns of alcohol and drug use and abuse, customs, beliefs, values, attitudes, norms, traditions, learning and communication skills. The concepts of stereotyping and blaming the victims will be explored. (Usually offered Spring semester.)
