Furthering Multiculturalism in Teaching, Supervision and Clinical Practice
October 9, 2015
9:00 am - 3:15 pm
The ongoing increase and complexities of diversity in the U.S. has led to further imperatives for the inclusion of multiculturalism in mental health education, training, supervision and clinical practice. Continuous, increased awareness of diversity has led to a need to effectively incorporate cultural competency into curricula content, teaching-learning processes and clinical practice. Cultural competence and responsiveness means not only understanding others, but for interns and trainees the self-as-clinician. Social micro-aggressions, daily indignities, violence and historical inequities have an enduring impact on relationships including therapeutic ones. All lives – including racial, ethnic, culturally diverse ones – matter. For practitioners also teaching and supervising there are imperatives for greater self-awareness as well as accountability. This workshop will emphasize actual applications of knowledge put into effective practices. This class will be led by Matthew R. Mock, PhD.
