CLAS Matters! Helping People Achieve Their Full Health Potential (CLAS: Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services Standards)

For decades, research data has documented poor behavioral health treatment outcomes for racial and ethnic communities. Behavioral health professionals and organizations are actively seeking to advance equity and meet the needs of diverse populations and provide quality care. The National Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS) Standards (developed by the Office of Minority Health) provide a framework for organizations and individual professionals to integrate CLAS, and operational activities to become culturally responsive in care and bridge the gaps of disparities for underserved communities.

This interactive training will review the National CLAS Standards as an outline of actionable steps to promote responsive care and offers interactive opportunities and group work where participants can brainstorm and develop strategies that help reduce racial and ethnic disparities and advance behavioral health equity and inclusion in their settings.

This training meets the requirements for 3 renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and 3 initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS). As an IC & RC member board, OASAS accredited courses are granted reciprocal approval by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs, Alcohol and Drug Counselor Committee. Many other states offer reciprocity - please check with your accrediting agency.

Participants are required to attend the ENTIRE training, turn on their video cameras and actively participate in order to receive a Certificate of Completion.
