Inhoud vak

As a psychologist, you will work with a highly diverse population.
Therefore, it is important that you operate from an inclusive
perspective that recognizes and respects diversity. Diversity not only
encompasses the range of cultural norms (including personal, family,
social and spiritual values) held by the diverse communities that you
serve, but can also be found in individual differences in age,
sexuality, gender, disabilities, language and social status.

This course teaches you the necessary knowledge, attitudes and
competencies to operate in an inclusive values-driven service. You will
learn to respond to people’s needs sensitively with regard to all
aspects of diversity to provide equal opportunities for all types of
patients. Moreover, this course will increase your understanding of the
impact of diversity topics on all different stages of clinical practice,
from information gathering and alliance building to actual treatment
delivery. Finally, you will apply this acquired knowledge to clinical
cases and develop recommendations for good clinical practice in a
diverse setting.

Each week we will focus on a different diversity topic (culture, age,
gender, spirituality, etc.) and explore its role in clinical practice.
Experts in the field will give lectures on their experience with and
research on diversity topics, and during more practical lectures you
will gain hands-on experience with an inclusive approach to assessment
and treatment of mental health disorders.
