Approaching Culture Authentically in Clinical Practice

Event Date:

February 19, 2022

Event Time:

10:00 am

This training will focus on ways to recognize and respond to various aspects of culture that both the client and the mental health provider bring to the therapeutic relationship. Cultural influences are present in all clinical interactions. Learned societal biases also enter the room.

We will explore clinically meaningful ways to broach culture and cultural identity with clients. This includes the intersectionality of identities. A key aspect of this will be to understand the ways that individualistic and collectivistic values manifest in clients’ behaviors and their understanding of mental health and wellness. Finally, the role of historical trauma and racial responsiveness will be discussed.

Objectives

1. To gain practical skills in being culturally responsive
2. To understand various levels of broaching culture in the room
3. To understand individualism and collectivism in clinical practice
