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 substance use and potentially developing trauma and stress complications. Provider bias in stigmatic language or other microaggressions affect a patient’s capacity to respond to clinical interventions and can further create a toxic work environment.
Culturally responsive organizations integrate cultural humility in practice and serve delivery, providing highest levels of patient centered care. This interactive virtual training will review practical tools and strategies that can be used to identify and diffuse personal bias and address dynamics of communication. Content will further inform on cultural humility as a practice that informs clinical processes, increases patient care and wellness for racial and ethnic populations, and help effect a supportive work environment.
