This unique interactive experience is an exploration of what "cultural
competency" means in today's world, from the perspective of how
cultural influences impact our perceptions, particularly in behavioral
health-related businesses. A range of culturally relevant topics will be
addressed that directly impact the worldview and ethical behavior of
professionals. Several group activities will be interactive, and
experiential activities will be used to examine and discuss into these
topics in relevant and meaningful ways.

In addition, we will be discussing the information in DSM-5 which
encourages cultural awareness in clinical settings and provides the
tools to do so. For this reason, participants are encouraged to bring a
copy of the DSM-5 if available.
