The growing diversity and projected increase of the US population require that providers become as adept as possible in working effectively with communities of color and other underserved populations. According to research, social determinants of health, poor communication and lack of culturally informed care, and more, underscore the high disparity rates of behavioral health care experienced by these communities.

This interactive training will help participants learn about the National Standards for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) as a recommended framework for enhancing the efficacy of service delivery to diverse populations and provides implementation strategies to improve culturally and linguistically conducive care, reduce racial and ethnic disparities and advance health equity and inclusion.

Participants are required to attend both Part One & Part Two sessions in their ENTIRETY; turn on their video cameras and to actively participate in order to receive a certificate of completion.

Credits: This training meets the requirements for 6 renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and 6 initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS).
