Cultural Humility and Responsiveness in Behavioral Health Care (CARC/CRPA CE in addition to OASAS-approved hours)

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 client’s capacity to respond to clinical interventions and are often identified in research, as components of poor behavioral health outcomes.

Practitioners who integrate cultural humility in practice are able to support highest levels of patient-centered culturally informed care. This interactive virtual training will review practical tools and strategies for providers to identify and diffuse personal bias, dynamics of culture in substance use treatment and how to facilitate and align cultural humility with other culturally responsive strategies to increase patient wellness for racial and ethnic populations.
