The Lost Boy

Whose Cross Cultural Competency Is It Anyway?

CE Credits: 1.00 Speaker(s): Manijeh Daneshpour, PhD Debates about multicultural competency, ethics of care, and social justice have proliferated throughout our mental health field and have become cliché conversations.

Culturally competent academicians, researchers, and clinicians must promote these principles by learning about culture, embracing pluralism, and proactive accommodation.
