Among concerns for psychologists providing treatment to individuals in diverse cultural communities are the issues of whether they themselves and/or their supervisors are able to understand the cultural contexts in which they work, provide psychological services, and may also live in. Deficits in this knowledge can lead to misunderstanding at best and failure to provide optimal treatment or even harm at worst. There will also be discussion and examples of cultural trauma and its relevance to psychological issues and therapy, as well as sensitivity and ethical decision-making in providing supervision.

These and related concerns will be discussed in an effort to heighten awareness and to avoid potential pitfalls and liability. Presenters will use clinical vignettes, relevant ethical guidelines, and discussion of practical challenges for clinicians in culturally diverse communities. Attendee examples of related ethical and treatment dilemmas will be welcomed into the discussion. Decision guidelines will be provided, and a peer consultation model emphasized.

Course Objectives

  • Describe examples of culturally diverse communities and examples of ethical dilemmas within them.
  • Describe risks, relevant ethical code and ethical decision making in providing treatment to culturally diverse populations.
