Lost in the barrens

by:Mowat, Farley

Jamie, an orphan who must leave his upper-class boarding school to live with an uncle in the wilderness of Manitoba, Canada, has no idea of the incredible adventure that awaits him. During a hunting trip, he and Awasis, a Native American Indian boy, become separated from the group. Finding themselves lost and alone in the icy and dreaded wilderness called The Barrens, their struggle to survive against impending doom strips away their prejudice toward one another's cultures, and demands from them more courage, determination and trust than they ever thought they could muster.

Multicultural counseling/therapy : culturally appropriate intervention strategies

by:Sue, Derald Wing

This video is part of a series that focuses on an examination of the factors that can adversely impact counseling. Because counseling does not take place in a vacuum, isolated from the larger sociopolitical influences of society, the practitioner needs to be alert to the danger of adopting the racial and cultural biases of their forebears. Topics discussed include avoidance of ethnocentric viewpoints, and developing the ability to understand the worldviews of other races, ethnic groups, cultures, genders, and classes, in order to understand the client within his/her context.

Racial microaggressions : impact and implications for counseling practice

by:Sue, Derald Wing

Is it possible for anyone to be born and raised in the United States without inheriting the racial biases of the society? How is it possible for good, moral and decent human beings to act in ways that oppress others? Do I oppress? Derald Wing Sue presents his most recent research on racial microaggressions; brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral and environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults to the target person or group. While the lecture concentrates on racial microaggressions, Sue links the phenomenon to gender and sexual orientation microaggressions as well. Therapists who are unaware of their biases and prejudices may unintentionally engage in microaggressions that create impasses for clients of color.
