Amersa Conference Workshop: Building Cultural and Technology Literacy in Behavioral Health Graduate Students Using a Curriculum Infusion Model: Enhancing Service Delivery in Rural Areas

Mountain Plains ATTC


Conference: Behavioral health practitioner workforce shortages in rural areas of the US remain high. New technological advances may help address these shortages by affording practitioners the opportunity to easily deliver behavioral health services virtually. However, Moore and colleagues (2016) reported that while the social work field routinely conducts behavioral health research in rural areas, most social work education programs do not provide specialized course work in rural issues. Given this increase in access to rural patients through the use of technology, many behavioral health practitioners find themselves unprepared to treat these patients as their cultural and technology literacy skills are insufficient. This workshop will provide tools to enhance curricula and assist in building a workforce that is technologically and culturally competent.
