As society becomes increasingly more diverse, the one size fits all approach to therapy and other human services has outlived its utility. As services are extended across racial, ethnic, and religious boundaries, it has become imperative for providers to develop a strong sense of cultural competence. Service delivery in today’s world requires practitioners to not only master the rudiments of their craft, but also to work sensitively and effectively with a wide array of clients from vastly diverse backgrounds including, the racially oppressed, ethnic minorities, women, queer, and immigrant populations .It is virtually impossible to work effectively in today’s world without establishing and integrating cultural competence within all aspects of standard practice.

This workshop will be devoted to assisting participants develop and enhance cultural competence in clinical practice and other service delivery systems. Participants will receive strategies and techniques for effectively addressing the nuances and the complexities of cultural diversity in clinical practice. A portion of the workshop will be devoted to the exploration of culturally based self of the Clinician issues that may facilitate and/or impede the development of cultural competence.
