Description

Serving African American Clients More Effectively Requires Sensitivity to Their Unique Needs
Ethnic differences in the use of mental health services have been documented for over 20 years. Studies show that African Americans are more likely to drop out of treatment early, [1] and this is often the result of negative attitudes towards therapy, stigma, and lack of cultural sensitivity among therapists [2, 3]. To better serve African American clients, it is important to better understand how social context and therapists' behaviors impact the treatment process.

For African American clients, mental health and psychological needs must be evaluated within the social context of the wider historical framework. The focus of this webinar will be to (1) overview the factors that impact treatment use among African Americans, (2) discuss the utility and application of the DSM-5® cultural formulation interview, and (3) provide practical applications of important steps for implementing evidence-based practice with African American clients.
