Multi-Cultural Awareness

In Person Training

Calendar bg

April

Developing cultural competence requires examining biases and prejudices and developing cross-cultural skills. Cultural competence requires that social workers, counselors, other practitioners and organizations have a defined set of values and principles, and demonstrate behaviors, attitudes, policies, and structures that enable them to work effectively cross-culturally. The course will discuss DSM-5’s cultural principles, including “Cultural Syndrome”, as well as gender and cross-cultural issues to be considered in diagnosis. The course will also review the (evidence based) Cultural Formation Interview (CFI), a semi-structured interview composed of 16 questions to assess cultural factors using a person-centered approach. This training can help social workers, clinicians and others avoid misdiagnosis, obtain clinically useful information, improve clinical rapport, and assess cultural epidemiology.
