Presented by Lindsay Vo, Psy.D.
July 8th, 2021
8:30 am – 12:00 pm

Instructional Level

Introductory — Designed for psychologists who may have little to no background in a specialized skill or content area. The learner can become acquainted with the theoretical underpinnings, principles, methods, and perspectives of a content area. Although it can be used as a foundation for more advanced learning, a program may simply focus on breadth, enrichment or general knowledge.

Course Description and Target Audience

The purpose of this training is to bring attention to cultural factors that may impact provider interactions and assessment as well as to explore the current suggestions for cross-cultural competency in assessment. In general, the training will focus on working with ethnically and linguistically diverse populations, though other diversity identities will be reviewed. Participants will be able to identify aspects of diversity that may impact their patient interactions as well as tools or resources that will help improve access to care to patients of minority status. There are no known risks associated with this presentation.

The target audience is mental health providers (advanced doctoral level psychology trainees, psychologists in practice, master’s level clinicians etc).

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to identify aspects of culturally competent clinical practice.
  • Participants will discuss relevant ethical implications and potential barriers.
  • Participants will explore ways that culture impacts psychological/neuropsychological assessment.
  • Participants will review a case study involving the application of these concepts.
