DREAMzone: Educating Counselors and Human Service Professionals Working with Undocumented Students
AbstractThis article discusses the development and implementation of DREAMzone, an educational intervention designed to provide counselors and other human service professionals with awareness, knowledge, and skills for working with undocumented students. DREAMzone is driven by four learning objectives: (a) identify and deconstruct preconceptions of undocumented immigrants; (b) increase knowledge about laws and policies affecting the experiences of undocumented students; (c) engage in direct contact with undocumented students; and (d) acquire skills, practices, and resources for working with undocumented students. Program reflections are provided, including future directions for effectuating a systems level transformation within higher education.
