EBC22: Using Cultural Intelligence to Advance Treatment in the African American Community
This session is sponsored by Cumberland Heights.
A Recorded Webinar
Recorded on Thursday, February 24, 2022
This training will explore the link between historical, intergenerational, and current trauma-related issues to African Americans and their communities. Most have had training and learning opportunities in "cultural competence," however, there continue to be struggles and issues finding the best ways to connect and treat our client populations. During this training, participants will work through cultural dynamics and advance our work. Participants will understand the connection between trauma, mental health, and contemporary challenges for African Americans. We will explore their experiences, perceptions, beliefs, and behaviors that may challenge constructive development. We will discuss practical, culturally-intelligent, and trauma-responsive strategies to keep our work with African Americans moving forward within our society.
