This course examines the history of Cultural Competence and barriers of communication that impacts providers’ ability to provide objective treatment. Mental health professionals come from various backgrounds and different walks of life which in return shapes their perceptions and definitions of cultural competence. Many providers have received training on cultural competence in Trauma-informed care, but there is very little training that encourages providers to be mindful of how their personal cultural and ethical perceptions may cause them to provide treatment through tainted lens.
Dr. Buckingham will share his personal story of trauma and distinguish between ethics and competence. He will also challenge current perceptions of cultural competence. Upon completion of this course you will leave with a clear understanding of the importance of viewing cultural competence from an individual perspective so that ethical treatment can be provided.
