Cultural Competence: A Journey to Improved Outcomes (Three-part training via Zoom)

Description: Cultural Competence is a lifelong process requiring personal awareness, education, sharing of power and intentional actions to address disparities in behavioral health care and improve provider knowledge, attitudes, and skills set and consequently provide tailored and equitable care for traditionally underserved populations. This interactive training invites learners to reflect on their cultural identities, history, and experiences, and consider how these and other factors can diminish or increase organizational and practitioner cultural responsiveness in behavioral health care for racial, ethnic, and other marginalized communities.

This 18 hour interactive event will be facilitated in three zoom sessions on April 26th, 28th, and 30th, from 9:00am to 1:30pm, and includes training assignments.
