Mental health care providers face the daily challenge of interacting with individuals and families whose race, culture, national origin, living circumstances and family composition are different from their own, especially as populations of individuals from diverse backgrounds are increasing in both urban and suburban areas. In BIPOC communities, there still appears to remain a stigma against seeking mental health services, however, more recent research suggests that more individuals who identify as BIPOC are engaging with these services. In contrast, the sociocultural location of mental health providers is different than that of many of the clients that they serve. This overall difference creates the possibility of a disconnect between clients and their providers affecting the delivery of mental health services including engagement in services, acceptance of treatment approaches and successful treatment outcomes. This course will highlight the importance of self-reflection in working with BIPOC clients and their families, culturally responsive and competent cognitive behavioral assessment techniques, treatment planning and effective mental health service delivery.
