Cultural Elements in Treating Hispanic and Latino Populations (Closed Event)

Studies show that Hispanics and Latinos seeking addiction and mental health treatment confront many barriers when accessing cultural and linguistically competent care. This interactive training will increase the competencies of behavioral health professionals working with these communities to integrate culture into practice, individualize recovery pathways, and increase successful outcomes for their clients. Discussions will explore how dynamics of culture can be risk factors for substance use, cultural factors in treatment, co-occurring disorders, service-related barriers encountered by Hispanic and Latinos, and culturally appropriate strategies to address them.
