Cultural Competency in Trauma Treatment

ID: 5017

The workshop will begin with a definition of trauma and the large array of situations which may produce traumatic experiences. It will then proceed with an introduction of the research available stipulating the importance and ethical significance of considering different aspects of culture in diagnosis, assessment and treatment of trauma. Cultural competency at an organizational level will be examined using handouts for participants to review and discuss in small groups. Different presentations among various cultural and ethnic groups will be described, as well as unique situations, such as in cases of immigration trauma, political torture and exposure to war. The latter part of the presentation will focus on case vignettes intended to spark discussion among participants in regards to how knowledge, self awareness, and cultural sensitivity/respect can be infused into our diagnosis, assessment and treatment of trauma.
