Workshop Description:

This workshop will walk professionals through the importance of cultural competence when working with patients/clients of varied backgrounds.  This training will highlight unique circumstances that may affect motivation for treatment, participation and recovery based on a patient’s racial/ethnic group, religious or spiritual affiliation, sexual orientation, age, physical ability, or other factors.  Through the use of a variety of learning methods, participants will learn multicultural competence theories and complete a self-assessment to determine both their individual and agency level of cultural competence.  Upon completion of this training, participants should be better equipped to address and/or accommodate aspects of a patient’s personal cultural in order to improve the patient experience, and most importantly, to improve treatment outcomes.
