ISBCC (Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center)


The purpose of this course is to expose students to a wide variety of theories of personality and counseling and to apply those approaches to their work as leaders in the community. The course provides students with the opportunity to practice those various approaches to counseling in simulated developmental settings and role-playing situations. The purpose is also to provide the opportunity for students to develop a personal theory of counseling, a unique style of counseling, effective techniques of counseling, special awareness and particularly multicultural awareness. All practice is done within a safe setting to give and receive critical feedback relating to the student’s person, mannerisms, style, counseling techniques and effectiveness.
