Title: Embracing the Culturally Diverse: Applying Ethically Sound Approaches in Clinical Practice
With: Latasha Matthews, MA, LPC, CPCS, CPLC
We know that biases and barriers exist in access to client care which can negatively impact the client’s ability to heal. In this 2-hour continuing education webinar, Latasha Matthews will highlight the importance of cultural humility and the ethical role mental health clinicians hold in providing compassionate care. She will outline approaches for ensuring goodness of fit when working with diverse clients and strategies for providing ethically sound services that protect and benefit both clinicians and the clinician’s clients. This webinar is also designed to help mental health professionals take an introspective look at themselves and how their own values and worldviews can impact their work with diverse clients and populations.
