16th Annual Cross-Cultural Counseling and Education Conference opens call for proposals

A call for proposals is now open for the the 16th Annual Cross-Cultural Counseling and Education Conference that will be held at the Coastal Georgia Center in Savannah Feb. 17-18, 2017.

The theme of this year’s conference is Ethical Responsibility and Culturally Responsive Counseling, which embraces anti-oppressive and multicultural perspectives. The conference focuses on racial identity development, ethnic identity development and gender and sexual orientation, from infancy through adult maturity.

A recognition of this development is necessary to understand the dynamics of multi-ethnic and multi-racial groups in the United States.

Major topics include identity development: racial, ethnic, gender, sexual orientation and ability; white/male/heterosexual privilege; cultural diversity; cultural and ethical competencies in counseling and education; and anti-oppression/anti-racism.

Speakers include Patricia Arredondo, Ed.D., the first and only Latina to serve as president of the American Counseling Association, and the William Cross Jr. Lecture Series speaker, Kenneth Foster, Ph.D., professor and experimental psychologist at Texas Women’s University in Dallas.
