Cultural Humility and Responsiveness in Behavioral Health Care

This webinar is most beneficial when taken with the webinar Implicit Bias, Understanding the Impact of What We Don’t See (offered on the same day). However, you may choose to register for either one or both.

Description: The National Alliance on Mental Illness recognizes that current environmental factors are traumatizing people of color, which as a risk factor can also initiate or increase substance use, and potentially developing trauma and stress complications. Prevention professionals who integrate cultural humility in practice can provide culturally responsive care and mitigate the potential impact of implicit bias.

Building on what will be presented in the Implicit Bias training, this interactive presentation will review dynamics of culture in substance use prevention and recovery support services. Additionally, content will review cultural humility key components and how they translate in practice for person-centered care and enhance the opportunities that build trust and rapport.
