Overview

Mental health care providers face the daily challenge of interacting with individuals and families whose race, culture, national origin, living circumstances, and family composition are different from their own, especially as populations of individuals from diverse backgrounds are increasing in both urban and suburban areas. While there still appears to remain a stigma against mental health treatment, more recent research suggests that more BIPOC individuals are increasingly engaging in mental health treatment. In contrast, the sociocultural location of mental health providers can be vastly different from many of the BIPOC clients they serve.. This overall difference creates the possibility of a disconnect that can affect many aspects of the delivery of mental health services. This workshop will highlight the importance of self-reflection in working with BIPOC clients and their families, culturally responsive and competent cognitive behavioral assessment techniques, treatment planning, and effective mental health service delivery.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Participants will identify strategies to reflect and be more self-aware of their past and current sociocultural location to increase and improve service delivery.
  • Participants will identify differing cultural needs and identify ways to meet those needs within their practice.
  • Participants will identify ways to implement, improve and foster culturally competent cognitive behavioral techniques/strategies within their practice.
