AAS 463 - ECCE: Counseling in Black Literature
This course takes an interdisciplinary, multi- and cross-cultural approach to the analysis of African American culture, using it as a basis for introducing students to the basic philosophy of Professional Counseling, developing sensitivity and awareness to the variety of social and psychological issues affecting the Black community, especially as conceived and expressed creatively in literary forms by Black writers. Close readings of literature, particularly novels that provide useful character and plot development, will be viewed as case studies to be discussed and analyzed.
