3 ethics CEUs and up to 7 total CEUs


Featured Topic: Culturally Competent Ethical Practice:

Practicing Cultural Humility and Embracing Cultural Opportunities presented by Sandra A. López, LCSW, ACSW, DCSW


Our professional code of ethics across disciplines sets ethical standards for promoting cultural competence in our clinical practice. Still, as clinical practitioners we may struggle in knowing how to effectively work with diverse cultures especially in our world today. Contemporary views of culture acknowledge that individuals may draw from various cultural affiliations in defining their identity or identities which may influence their perception of problems and ways of coping. The intersection of these distinct cultural identities can create complex encounters and even challenging ethical dilemmas for the clinical practitioner especially in group psychotherapy. This keynote will address how we can best navigate these complex challenges, adopt a practice of cultural humility, and seize the cultural opportunity.


By the end of the keynote presentations, participants will be able to:

1. Explore the ethical responsibilities related to cultural competence
2. Define a theoretical framework for cultural competent practice
3. Describe key cultural constructs including cultural humility, cultural opportunities, microaggressions, and other constructs to enhance cultural understanding
4. Identify clinical ethical dilemmas in the context of clinical practice; and
5. Explore practical application of an ethically culturally competent practice approach.
