  • Gain a clear understanding of the meaning of and distinction between the terms “Culture,” “Race,” and “Ethnicity.”
  • Explore the role culture plays in our own lives; how it shapes our worldview and functioning
  • Make the connection between culture and presenting problems in how counselors assess their clients
  • Learn how to avoid premature diagnosis and assessment without exploring cultural context through the client’s narratives
  • Expand on the trauma informed approach to treatment to better incorporate cultural systemic barriers
