Mary-Jo Land R.P. Psychotherapy in Diverse Cultures: Trauma Interpreted

Advanced Workshop; 1.5 CE Credits

Our society is becoming increasingly diverse. Often it is difficult for a service user to find a culturally– and language– matched mental health provider. When the professional and the client are not matched, complexities of culture, language, and explanatory models of mental health and illness must be addressed in order to provide equitable, effective and culturally competent treatment. Basics of working effectively with an interpreter will be explored. Participants will be able to: 1) Describe at least three aspects of cultural competency and cultural safety in the psychotherapeutic process; 2) Identify three key aspects of the clinician, client and interpreter that contribute to cultural complexities; 3) List at least five strategies that enhance the interpreted psychotherapeutic process; 4) List three strategies to reduce power and relationship imbalances in the interpreted psychotherapy session; 5) Analyze differences in trauma symptomatology and meaning across cultures.
