Cultural Competence in Mental Healthcare

Tuesday, April 24, 2017 | 1:00 p.m. ET, 12:00 p.m. CT

Vanina Hochman, MA, LMFT
Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Developing cultural competence is a process, not an endpoint. Features of a culturally competent health practitioner include understanding the concept of culture and how it can influence emotions. Clinicians must demonstrate a willingness to explore culture from the perspectives of those from diverse backgrounds while leveraging appropriate strategies for working with such individuals.

This presentation will outline a philosophy of awareness and individualization and how it can be an asset to quality care.
