OUR FEATURED TRAININGS
MENTAL HEALTH AND POVERTY: Culture Counts!
Studies overwhelmingly reveal the correlation between mental health and poverty leading to an ongoing deficit in their ability to adequately care for both themselves and their children. This workshop provides opportunities to better understand the lives of those living in poverty and coping with mental illness, challenge stigmas and implicit biases, while identifying meaningful strategies for increasing client engagement and support towards reunification and holistic wellness.
HONORING DIVERSITY: Strategies for Culturally Adapting Evidence-Based Interventions
While the use of evidence-based treatments and interventions is critical to effectively address mental health and substance use challenges, racial and ethnic groups continue to be vastly underrepresented in this data. Professionals and organizations often must rely on modalities that have no cultural considerations, further exacerbating health disparities. In this session, attendees will explore the need for cultural adaptation and obtain meaningful, real-world applications for implementing culturally specific strategies within evidence-based practices.
THE COLOR OF TRAUMA:
Validating Experiences, Accepting Differences and Acknowledging Mistakes
This training explores the diverse experiences of trauma and how historical oppression affects current generations' experience with depression, low self-esteem, anger, and self-destructive behavior. Participants are encouraged to challenge social norms and will learn strategies to support populations experiencing historical trauma.
