ABOUT THIS WEBINAR:
This presentation reviews the influences of culture and ethnic diversity on families and youth impacted by problematic sexual behavior. Explore how a balanced response contributes to the goal of understanding and healing.
A culturally competent provider needs to learn and examine other belief systems including understanding the complexity of identities and that even in sameness there are differences. Providers recognize the importance of being life-long learners as well as being aware of what is happening. Additionally, providers should be aware of perceptions and internal experiences in the moment to place themselves within the experience of another.
By the end of this webinar presentation, attendees will be able to:
- Understand the complexities of cultural identities and how it influences views of mental health services, with a specific focus on the significance of military family culture.
- Identify how health-related beliefs, practices, and cultural values influence the understanding of problematic sexual behavior.
- Discuss the influence of cultural values on access to treatment, treatment response, and completion of treatment addressing problematic sexual behavior in youth.
- Understand how Cultural Competence, Cultural Humility, and Reflexivity can be strengthened for the role of providers to communicate awareness, compassion, and cultural safety.
