Marcel teaches Communication Practicum

This course supports professional development, personal integration, and self‐healing practices for IHL students. It reviews basic communication skills; effective and therapeutic communication strategies; and didactic, somatic, and multicultural communication perspectives. A practical and theoretical review of group dynamics and mediation is offered through facilitated modeling in small groups. A part of each session will be devoted to mind‐body‐spiritual practices (yoga, ta'ai chi, meditation, visualization, qigong,and so on) in order to support the students' physical, spiritual, and mental health.
