We live in a rapidly changing world. On any given day there are new stories emerging about conflicts that arise from our inability to bridge our differences. Every day, our country and our city become more diverse. As clinicians, we are asked to provide services to an increasingly diverse clientele, often with little training formal training in serving clients who are not like us.|
This training is designed to provide a foundation for building culturally competent programs. It is designed to enable clinicians to examine their own current strategies for addressing cultural differences and to help them to develop an intercultural worldview and a multicultural practice. Training participants will be introduced to the Stages of Intercultural Development and Monocultural Worldviews. With guiding, participants will identify strategies for promoting their own intercultural growth and exploring the first steps toward providing effective treatment across cultures.
As a result of this training, participants will be able to:
Name and describe five developmental stages of intercultural competence,
Differentiate between a monocultural worldview and an intercultural worldview,
Understand the limits of minimizing cultural differences when providing treatment,
Learn strategies for moving forward in their own intercultural competence, and
Identify steps they can take to provide culturally competent treatment to clients.
