Working with diverse populations is especially challenging when facilitating behavior change and warrants a means of eliciting client cultural perceptions that inform on realistic conduits to their change.  This interactive two part (90 minutes each) webinar, will discuss the importance of integrating a process oriented and collaborative method of working with persons of diverse backgrounds inclusive of their cultural perspectives. Content will include cultural dynamics of working with cultural groups, tools for self-assessment, and strategies to incorporate culture and individualize the client’s pathways toward recovery and wellness.
