Annual conference will address cross-cultural issues in counseling and education
The seventh annual Southeastern Conference on Cross-Cultural Issues in Counseling and Education will focus on understanding the dynamics of multi-ethnic and multi-racial groups in the United States.
Sponsored by Georgia Southern University, the conference will take place on Friday and Saturday, Feb. 8 and 9, at the Coastal Georgia Center in Savannah.
Educators working in kindergarten through college will join psychologists, social justice advocates, social workers, volunteer service providers and other people who are involved in diversity and cross-cultural issues.
The three keynote addresses will cover counseling immigrants, developing a moral identity, and black identity development. Other presentation themes will include white/male/heterosexual privilege, cultural diversity, cultural and ethnic competence in counseling and education, and issues of oppression and racism.
Participating Georgia educators can earn credit for one professional learning unit (PLU) for attending the conference. Continuing education units (CEUs) are available for qualified social workers and counselors.
The early registration fee is $185 per person. The fee will be reduced to $155 per person for schools or organizations that send four or more participants.
