MSWK 507 - CULTURAL DIVERSITY, RACISM, OPPRESSION AND PRIVILEGE
This course is designed to help students work more effectively with clients from diverse racial, ethnic and cultural backgrounds. From developmental and ecological systems perspectives, the course examines racism, sexism, ethnicity, ageism, homophobia, social class, and discrimination against persons with physical disabilities and illness, such as HIV/AIDS. Students will identify their own relationship to diversity and the factors of oppression and privilege that are relevant in social work practice. They will learn to cultivate a cultural consciouness through awareness of self, of the client’s identity through history and cultural contributions, and by paying attention to systems of oppressin and privilge that contribute to our own self-concept and our perceptions of others. The effect of these considerations will be viewed in the context of globalization, immigration, and current events that affect social work practice in urban America.
