Cultural Competency & Diversity: Powerful Strategies to Improve Client Rapport & Multicultural Awareness is organized by PESI HealthCare and will be held on Mar 16, 2020 at Holiday Inn Alexandria at Carlyle, Alexandria, Virginia, United States of America. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 6.3 contact hours / 6.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Target Audience: • Counselors • Social Workers • Psychologists • Case Managers • Addiction Counselors • Therapists • Marriage & Family Therapists • Nurses • Other Mental Health Professionals Course Description: I was raised in Vancouver, British Columbia, during an era when Canadians embraced the value of being a multicultural nation. I remember in college spending a semester studying French in Quebec City and experiencing what it is like to be a “fish out of water”. When I moved to the United States as a graduate student to study cross-cultural counseling, I had to learn how Americans think about diversity. Now, after 35 years of research, teaching, consulting, and clinical work in the U.S.A., I have a keen understanding of the challenges of providing mental health services in a multicultural and diverse society. Developing cultural competencies is a professional and ethical imperative for human service providers. When you attend this seminar, I will outline the knowledge, awareness and skills that clinicians should develop to work ethically, efficiently and effectively with people from different cultures and ethnic groups. I will help you identify: • The challenges of cultural competency for your own professional work setting (i.e. private practice, hospital units, nursing facilities, schools, colleges, etc.). • A method to map out the intersecting identities and positionalities of a helping relationship to build rapport and anticipate points of possible resistance • Empirically-validated self-assessments to evaluate your strengths, growth areas and design a professional development plan Confidence will grow as you learn to broach culture, ethnicity and race and tailor your interventions to different clients. Learn how to be more competent serving others, who are in some ways like all others, in other ways like some, and in some ways like no other. Objectives: • Apply DSM-5 cultural formulation to accurately assess cultural influences on diagnosis and treatment planning. • Review ethical standards for a culturally competent practice to inform clinical assessment and treatment. • Identify multiple intersecting identities and positionalities to build rapport and engagement with diverse clients. • Utilize clinical strategies to adapt interventions for clients from different cultural and ethnic groups. • Apply skills to overcome cultural barriers such as class, language, religion and different belief systems to improve treatment outcomes. • Increase treatment effectiveness by recognizing different cultural values and unintentional microaggressions.
