Racial injustice and the COVID pandemic have highlighted existing disparities in mental health treatment. Given the diversity of the country and the sociopolitical climate, it is important to understand the current science and how to apply this in your clinical work. The focus of this session will be to overview current mental health concerns among racially diverse families during the pandemic. Considerations for providing evidence-based treatments within a multicultural framework will also be discussed.
By the end of this program, participants will be able to:
- Identify at least 2 current trends in mental health among children and their families from diverse groups
- Identify at least 3 guiding principles of multicultural practice
- Apply multicultural guidelines to providing evidence-based treatments (EBTs)
- Identify at least 2 challenges implementing EBTs in clinical practice.
