ESTABLISHING HOPE: DEVELOPING A CULTURALLY RESPONSIVE CLINICAL PRACTICE THROUGH AN AFRICANA PARADIGM (this meets the cultural competency requirement)

June 1, 2018 @ 8:45 am

Lorenzen Center Auditorium Legacy Emanuel Hospital 2801 N. Gantenbein Portland OR 97227

Presented by Andre Pruitt, LCSW

By increasing one’s cultural or equity lens, health care professionals can create a practice that honors patients’ diverse values, beliefs and behaviors and design treatments that address clients’ social, cultural and language needs. This training focuses on increasing practitioners’ cultural responsiveness in clinical practice. Practitioners will increase awareness in how racial schemas influence therapeutic relationships and assessments. By applying the Africana framework, practitioners will increase their skills in assessing behaviors in a way that promotes healing. The presentation will explore structural racism, racial schemas, and implicit biases that impacts clinical practice. The presentation/training focuses on skills to create an equitable practice across multiple cultures and marginalized identities and tools to strengthen the therapeutic relationship.
