Dealing with Differences and Diversity in the Clinical Treatment of Children and Adolescents-WEB

ID: 5658WEB

This webinar addresses ethnic and cultural differences relevant to the assessment and treatment of children and adolescents. The webinar will use examples from Latino, African American, and African Caribbean families, but will stress the dimensions of cultural difference that clinicians should explore when working across any cultural or ethnic difference. Topics will include the evaluation and treatment implications of cultural and ethnic differences: 1) family composition and family structure; 2) child-rearing and schooling practices; 3) gender and generational role expectations; 4) definitions of mental health and illness; 5) definitions of help and help-seeking; 6) the common clashes between client expectations and the professional helpers; and 7) ways for clinicians to bridge the gaps in culture reducing the effectiveness of services. The webinar will combine didactic presentations and group exercises. [Required for Child & Adolescent Mental Health Certificate Program]
