The Cultural Autobiography Paper  will allow students the opportunity for an in-depth examination of their own identities, values, and experiences related to culture. Consideration of such personal values and variables is essential for therapists in understanding (a) their own worldviews, (b) the worldviews of their clients, and (c) how issues of diversity and social structures impact their therapeutic work. Self-awareness is a primary component of ethical counseling practice. Ultimately, you decide what you are including and what you want to think about in private.

Each student will describe their own experiences with multicultural issues. 

b.       Describe how you learned about your heritage, family ritual, what growing up was like, relevant demographics, family held worldviews, and familial experiences with oppression.  grew up in california, los angeles then joined the military grew up in a hispanic family.
