CPSY 675 - Immersion Latin America

Unit(s): 1

The culture and language immersion course taught in Latin America, is an intensive eight-day program that focuses on helping students explore their own sociocultural identities within the context of Latinx culture. Surrounding themselves with the rich cultural heritage and resources of Latin America, students will experience linguistic and clinical immersion through in-service-learning activities in the mental health care systems of the local communities. Students will be receiving Spanish-language tutoring, will be learning directly from mental health professionals practicing in that country, and will be engaging in experiential exercises that address the impact of heritage on experience of privilege, prejudice, and oppression. In addition, students will engage in various cultural events (e.g., learning about indigenous healing practices) and excursions that will help enrich their understanding of Latinx culture.
