In this course, we examine the role that diversity and multiculturalism plays in identity development of system involved youth of color. Culturally specific education, reflection, and community building are key components of identity development, and critical for system involved youth who have historically been marginalized and subjugated. In this course, we identify ways to support young people healing from traumatic experiences.
