Program Description:
COUN 145/COUN 245: Understanding Diverse Populations: Hawaii. 
Matt Bruinekool & Wade Leuwerke
AOI: Global and Cultural Understanding, Historical Foundations.
The course will introduce students to the Clubhouse Model for individuals with mental illnesses. They will learn about the clubhouse, how it functions, and the standards that each clubhouse must follow. They will then spend time working in a clubhouse in Des Moines, learning about working with people with mental illness in Iowa and learn about how the clubhouse here is meeting all of the international standards. The class then will travel to Kapaa, Hawaii (on Kauai). First they will learn about the Hawaiian culture, and then they will spend a week at the clubhouse there working with individuals with disabilities. They will learn how mental illness is viewed within the Hawaiian culture and how the clubhouse there meets the same international standards as the clubhouse in Des Moines. This course is cross-listed with COUN 245 (crn 1579), which is a graduate-only course. However, the COUN 145 version of the class is open to undergraduates.  

Estimated Range for 2019: $3,700-4,070. Airfare included.
*Some spots reserved for graduate students. Gender balance will also be taken into consideration. Program capped at 14.
