DEI: An Introduction to Multicultural Care

Green Clock Hours: 1.00

The U.S. has a history of attracting diverse populations to live within its borders. Inhabitants currently represent hundreds of cultural, ethnic, and linguistic groups. 

Increasing awareness of cultural diversification has challenged traditional institutions and practices. This includes the delivery of treatment services. Outcome studies have consistently demonstrated the need for change in the way that healthcare and other services operate. Awareness of and sensitivity to cultural issues are critical to establishing a positive relationship with the people you are serving and ensuring beneficial treatment outcomes. 

Unfortunately, persons of various races, ethnicities, cultural, and social identities are often underserved by the healthcare system. Treatment services are impacted by provider bias, institutional bias, and inadequate support. This can change with ongoing cultural humility training, such as the education provided by this course. 

The goal of this course is to help Addictions, Behavioral Health Counseling, Case Management/Care Management, Marriage and Family Therapy, Non-Licensed Direct Care, Nursing, Psychology, and Social Work Professionals in health and human services settings understand the importance of providing multicultural care.
