Increasing Multicultural awareness is getting more essential day by day...Cultural competency is a must in the mental health field in order to understand and appreciate cultural diversity while providing mental health services and eliminate hate incidents (not only in schools but broader parts of our communities).
Multicultural therapists can foster multicultural awareness and help people to understand the norms, values, traditions, experiences and life styles of minority groups.
This professional networking group aims to foster collaborative networking opportunity and provide psychoeducation for mental health professionals of all ages and levels (LMHC, LICSW, LMFT, Clinical Psychologists, Psychiatrists, Psychotherapists, Holistic Healers who promote Mental Health Wellness, School Psychologists, Behavioral Therapists and Psychoanalysts). This group aims to explore and develop effective and creative solutions for psychosocial and mental health issues by using multicultural lenses. Through local meetups, workshops and trainings we will develop cultural sensitivity and competency with people who are interested in multicultural therapy. While sharing our personal and clinical experiences, we will help as well as support each other to gain awareness and knowledge of various cultural beliefs and practices that will make us culturally competent mental health professionals.
