Arab and Muslim populations in Western societies continue to grow, and these populations face unique challenges in our current global, political, and social climate. It is imperative for clinicians to develop a better understanding of the mental health needs of these communities in order to provide effective treatment.
During this two-hour continuing education web conference, Jamila Oden MEd, LPC will address culturally-unique aspects of ethnic Arabs and Muslims. She will also explore best practices and ethical considerations for mental health and addiction professionals to utlize and consider when working with these populations.
Jamila will explain how incorporating cultural competence into treatment improves therapeutic decision making. Applying cultural competence to clinical practice offers alternative ways to define and plan a treatment program that is firmly directed toward progress and recovery as defined by both the mental health provider and the client.
