This workshop will provide attendees with an overview of cultural diversity and cultural competency issues facing therapists and counselors in the twenty-first century. This webinar helps clinicians recognize the process of developing cultural competency for working with clients. The webinar is easy to follow and provides excellent case examples. This webinar also identifies strategies for clinicians to use when encountering individuals from a different culture than themselves. There are opportunities for interactive discussion.
Intended Audience: Psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors and marriage and family therapists can benefit from this course. This course may also be helpful for other practitioners, such as midwives, dieticians, and nutritionists who also need continuing education in the area of cultural competency. Some states that require continuing education courses for licensed professionals require cultural diversity or cultural competency training as part of license or certification renewal. This course is appropriate for beginning, and intermediate level practitioners who wish to learn about cultural diversity and cultural competency.
