2018 Ecuador MFTS 563 & 579

Collaborative Care and Bilingual Therapy

The Collaborative Care course will introduce students to various models of collaborative care and the unique set of clinical skills MFT's need to work successfully on integrated care teams. The Bilingual Therapy will explore the unique issues related to working with linguistically diverse populations and providing therapy in a language other than English. In the two courses that will be offered together, students will travel to Cuenca, Ecuador. Ecuador is an ideal location due to the significant linguistic diversity found throughout the country's population. Students will have the opportunity to interact with Universidad de Cuenca MFT students, many of whom provide clinical services to linguistically diverse populations.
