Cultural Equity: Moving culture to the center of mental health practice
Presenter: Telsie A. Davis, PhD
This 1-hr seminar is a call-to-action in response to a long-standing humanitarian injustice in mental health care. Clients with cultural identities marginalized by society continue to experience a significantly poorer quality of mental health care in comparison to clients who are White, middle-class, heterosexual, cisgender, non-disabled or in other ways privileged. Dr. Davis will discuss tangible therapeutic strategies that can ensure clients from marginalized cultural groups receive what they need to benefit from mental health treatment at their fullest potential.
1. Explain the similarities and differences between cultural equity, cultural competence, and cultural humility
2. Identify 3 culturally equitable clinical strategies
3. Identify 3 culturally equitable organizational strategies
