Building Cultural Competence to Enhance your Clinical Practice 

 

Workshop Description:

This event aims to provide a forum for discussion and to increase the cultural competencies of mental health professionals. The event will provide definitions of terms such as master status, intersectionality, and race and ethnicity. Participants will be able to explore and share their own cultural identities that are prominent for them. The Multicultural Perspective (MCP) endeavors to promote understanding of “other,” but also understanding of “self” and, especially, “self in relation to other.” Participants will explore key clinical skills of the MCP, including self-awareness, capacity to tolerate intensity, and understanding of dynamics of power and oppression, among others. 

 

This event promotes an examination of the self as a therapist - identifying and exploring dimensions of culture, reflecting and exploring values and beliefs, completing a cultural genogram, and promoting ongoing learning. Participants will engage in dialogue about the impact of social positions and privilege in their work. A Patient Cultural Identity Assessment handout will be shared so participants can easily integrate a new assessment in their clinical practice.  

Learning Objectives:

After attending this intermediate-level workshop, participants will be able to:

(1) Understand and describe the concept of intersectionality

(2) Demonstrate knowledge of a model for integrating diversity into practice

(3) Apply that model to clinical work

Addressing Ethical Issues in Clinical Practice: A Case Study Approach

 

 Workshop Description:

There are several core values that serve as the underpinnings of ethical clinical practice, including service, social justice, the dignity of individuals, the importance of human relationships, integrity, and clinical competence.  Having a code of ethics helps to guide our work, to define our own limits and boundaries, and to protect the individuals we serve, the organizations where we work, and our own professional liability.

Most seasoned clinicians can identify a number of different ethical dilemmas they have faced in their clinical practice.  This workshop will present a seven-step decision-making model for ethical dilemmas that emerge in clinical practice.  Participants will then practice applying the seven-step model to a number of different clinical case studies presented. 

Learning Objectives:

After attending this intermediate-level workshop, participants will be able to:

(1) Describe core values of ethical clinical practice.

(2) Describe the purpose and benefits of adhering to a professional code of ethical conduct.

(3) Apply an ethical decision-making model to specific clinical cases.
