Training Description and Core Clinical Components:

Integrating culture into clinical practice can increase treatment engagement and success, especially in AI/AN communities. Treatment providers can improve clinical engagement and outcomes by determining an individual’s level of acculturation and adapting treatment strategies, accordingly, including making referrals to culturally based practices. This two-hour interactive webinar will identify cultural traditions of AI/AN people to consider in treatment. The presenters will review an acculturation scale that providers can use to start a conversation about culture. Attendees will have an opportunity to use the scale in small group practice and determine ways to utilize the tool in their own practice.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the training, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify three (3) cultural strategies when engaging American Indian/Alaska Native people.
  2. Recall two (2) elements of an acculturation scale designed to address culture for AI/AN people.
  3. Specify two (2) examples of integrating findings on acculturation into clinical practice.
