Course Description:
This course is based upon material published by the Community Mental Health Journal and is available with open access at Springerlink website.
 
Abstract: This study analyzes descriptive data among a clinical sample of American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) youths receiving mental health services in a large California metropolitan area. Among 118 urban AI/AN youths, mood disorders (41.5 percent) and adjustment disorder (35.4 percent) were the most common mental health diagnoses. Alcohol (69.2 percent) and marijuana (50.0 percent) were the most commonly used substances. Witnessing domestic violence (84.2 percent) and living with someone who had a substance abuse problem (64.7 percent) were reported. The majority of patients demonstrated various behavior and emotional problems. Enhancing culturally relevant mental health and substance abuse treatment and prevention programs for urban AI/AN youth is suggested.
 
This course is a descriptive study that relates culturally relevant information regarding mental health and substance abuse characteristics in urban American Indian (AI) and Alaska Native (AN) youth. This course on cultural competency for youth is valuable for clinical social workers  and substance abuse counselors as well as psychologists, nurses, chemical dependency workers, and professional counselors who work with adolescents and need continuing education. This course is appropriate for beginning, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to develop their understanding of various cultural components of their clients.  It may also be useful for licensed clinicians who require cross cultural competency courses as part of their continuing education and are interested in learning more about urban youth.
