Cultural Humility and Responsiveness in Behavioral Health Care (October 20, 2021)
The National Alliance on Mental Illness recognizes that current environmental factors are traumatizing people of color, which as a risk factor can also initiate or increase stress and substance use. Provider bias in stigmatic language or other microaggressions can also affect a client’s capacity to respond to clinical services and are often identified in research, as components of poor behavioral health outcomes.
Culturally responsive organizations integrate cultural humility in all levels of practice and service delivery, providing highest levels of patient centered care and building equity with persons of color and other marginalized communities. This interactive virtual training will review how to integrate cultural humility within care, review culturally and linguistically appropriate services for organizational capacity building opportunities, and demonstrate how culturally informed care increases patient wellness for racial and ethnic populations.
Credits: This training meets approval for three renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and three initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS).
Participants must attend the session in its entirety, turn on their video cameras and actively participate to receive a certificate of completion.
