MULTIcultural Counseling

Nothing can be more effective in learning than seeing how your actions as a counselor affect your client. It can be especially helpful in ethnically diverse situations. MULTIcultural Counseling explores the tension that can occur in these situations. Why is this two video series so essential to today's counselor and teacher? Because it focuses on the potential barrier between a counselor and client who have different cultural backgrounds. This unique series presents seven different vignettes of multicultural counseling sessions on two convenient videocassettes. Program 1 focuses on situations involving ethnic and racial concerns. Program 2 discusses issues related to religious and gender identity, career, and language. Each vignette (or counselor/client dyad) incorporates the techniques of self-talk -- you hear the thoughts of both the client and counselor -- which heightens the awareness of internal processes that occur during interactions. Understanding what both client and counselor are thinking affects the outcome of the session. This series also includes two carefully structured and detailed Instructor Workbooks. These workbooks discuss specific issues from each vignette and include practical exercises which lead the viewer to a fuller understanding of the influence that differences of culture make in the counseling process. The purpose of MULTIcultural Counseling is to help you and your trainees learn how cultural differences apply to counseling. This program is not just for new counselors, but for all counselors! The MULTIcultural Counseling videos and workbooks are essential in training and retraining today's counselor.

Children and Autism: The Family, Siblings of Autistic Children

Children and Autism: The Family, Siblings of Autistic Children WPSU produced it's first original program, the award-winning documentary, Autism: Time is Brain, focused on the importance of early diagnosis and intervention and the use of Applied Behavioral Analysis as critical to reaching the best outcomes for children with autism. Since then, we've interviewed such luminaries in the world of autism as Temple Grandin, probably the best-known and most accomplished autistic in the world. Our latest program deals with the impact of autism on the typically developing brothers and sisters of children with autism. To find out more about the range of grown-up responsibilities and challenges these siblings face, we visited with three families who are raising an autistic child, and talked with a grown sibling. We also talked with one of the nation's leading experts on the siblings of children with autism, Dr. David Celiberti. This program examines the factors that influence the quality of the sibling relationship--typically the longest and most complicated relationship in the family—as well as the issues "typicals" face and what parents can do to help. Of special interest is the fact that in this program we went back to visit with the Camazine family. They were featured in Time is Brain. Their son Conor is now enrolled in a typical classroom and doing remarkably well. He no longer has an IEP (Individual Education Plan) and is indistinguishable in most ways from his same-age peers. We visited with the Camazines to examine the impact Conor's intensive educational treatment had on his big sister, Caela.
