Tribal Urban/Indian Provider Training: Addressing Cultural Identity in Substance Use Treatment among American Indians / Alaska Natives – NorCal
August 1 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm PDT
Integrating culture into clinical practice can increase treatment engagement and success, especially in AI/AN communities. Treatment providers can improve clinical engagement and outcomes by determining an individual’s level of acculturation and adapting treatment strategies, accordingly, including making referrals to culturally based practices. This two-hour interactive webinar will identify cultural traditions of AI/AN people to consider in treatment. The presenters will review an acculturation scale that providers can use to start a conversation about culture. Attendees will have an opportunity to use the scale in small group practice and determine ways to utilize the tool in their own practice.
