PSYC 224 Practicum in Intergroup Relations, Group Dynamics, and Dialogue Facilitation

This course provides students with an intellectual and practical foundation in dialogue facilitation. Participants will apply intergroup relations theory and knowledge about culturally diverse populations as they learn about and attend to group dynamics, conflict management, and intergroup relations pedagogy. Specific attention will focus on multicultural dialogues devoted to Sexual Orientation, Social Class, Race, Gender, and Ability. Training videos and exercises, in addition to small group co-facilitations form the foundation of the course. Group work, including pedagogical development meetings, are required outside of class as preparation for facilitation. 

Applications due by March 23, 2018. Contact the Professor Rodriguez (jackir@oxy.edu) for application information.
