What is a modern definition or a contemporary conceptualization of caregiving and counseling? How are the events and trends of our world today shaping the nature and function of the helping professions? Presently, globalism, secularism, extremism, and radicalism constitute a major challenge to individuals, communities, and nations alike and to both the care-giver/therapist and the care receiver/client! Trans-national, trans-theoretical, and trans-cultural implications will be discussed.

Educational Objectives:

  1. List four major effects, both advantages and disadvantages, of globalization on us and on our world today.
  2. Describe two major challenges (socio-cultural and psycho-political) facing psychotherapy and the helping professions in general.
