Summary

Teaching Gender and Multicultural Awareness provides information about how to integrate topics of diversity into a variety of psychology courses and programs of study. Because psychology now contains a rich body of knowledge that reaches across gender, social, and cultural lines, a single class about gender or cross-cultural studies is no longer sufficient to teach students about multiculturalism. Instead, such issues need to be incorporated into each part of the psychology curriculum.

This edited volume helps instructors integrate information about diversity into their classes and directs them to useful printed, video, and Internet resources. It also includes creative projects and exercises that they can use in introductory or graduate level courses. Chapters discuss groups typically considered in a multicultural course (i.e., Latinos, Asians, and African Americans) as well as individuals who are often overlooked, such as the disabled, older adults, and lesbian, gay, and bisexual people. The book concludes with a section describing models for broader curricular change, such as in clinical doctoral training and continuing education programs.

Filled with thoughtful and creative guidance by expert teachers, this book is a valuable resource for educators who seek effective methods to give students a thoughtful and comprehensive understanding of the culturally evolving world in which they will live and work.
