CULTURALLY COMPETENT TRAUMA INFORMED ASSESSMENT, DIAGNOSIS, AND TREATMENT – a Culture interest event taking place on 2019-05-20 10:00:00 in United States
This training looks at re-conceptualizing the assessment, diagnosis and treatment processes for diverse populations. The goal is to assist service providers with identifying strategies for assessing, diagnosing and treating individuals of color within culturally specific contexts. There is also a component on integrating members of the LGBTQ+ community into the healthcare setting. By the end of this training, the attendee will be able to: Identify clinical significance of culture specific/ environment specific experiences in people of diverse populations. Identify strategies for understanding culture-specific trauma responses and how the DSM-5 captures this along the new spectrum based diagnosing. Identify language and interventions for documenting these concepts during the assessment and treatment planning phases. Tailor conceptualization and intervention to the population being served. Consideration: New research and treatment approaches encourage service providers to really delve into the onset, frequency, duration and severity of symptomatology to reduce overutilization of diagnoses that paint punitive pictures of clients rather than providing more thorough review of the client’s needs, i.e., conduct disorder versus post-traumatic stress disorder or oppositional defiant disorder early onset versus reactive attachment disorder. It is the goal of the facilitators that we bring awareness to service providers of common misdiagnoses children of color in foster care and incarceration are labeled with while providing strategies for really drilling down the issues and separating out manifestations of trauma and attachment issues. The target audience is licensed MFT/LCSW/ LPC clinicians, interns, instructors and clinical supervisors in charge of quality assurance at their respective sites. *Flyer Photo by Ian Schneider on Unsplash
