​Description: 
This interactive experiential training/workshop will provide attendees with a more in-depth understanding of all of the cultural variances that may impact clients to ensure effective individualized client care using a strength-based application. 

Attendees will gain an understanding that as human beings we possess cultural filters that may cause bias, which must be identified and traversed through supervision or external supports to ensure our effectiveness as catalysts for client change. Transference and countertransference will be explored as well as the importance of staff not imposing their own value system or methods of personal growth or recovery onto clients. Application and exercises involving the use of Motivational Interviewing and Trauma Informed care will also be included.  

The National Institute of Health (NIH) National Standards for Culturally Linguistic Appropriate Services in Health Care and the Department of Human Services Bureau of Standards of Care will be discussed and their application to employees and organizations. 

Objectives:
Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to: 

  • Understand the importance of utilizing culturally-sensitive care to provide client-centered collaborative effective treatment. 
  • Identify cultural filters that may cause bias and how this can affect client support. 
  • Learn the application of effective culturally sensitive communication styles, treatment models, and environments that may be used if interacting with a client individually, in a group setting or with families. 
  • Understand the importance of utilizing the DPH/BSAS and National CLAS Standards to insure they and their organizations provide individualized care and cultural integration within the organizations scope of treatment.
