The Relationship Boosters! Cultural Competence in Couples Counseling

June 05, 2023

 10:00 AM – 4:45 PM EST

(6 CE Credits – Cultural Competence)

  

The Relationship Boosters! Cultural Competence in Couples Counseling

Even a highly seasoned couples therapist can feel out of sync when encountering unfamiliar cultural patterns in a marriage. Similarly, the stresses of cultural differences between partners in an intimate relationship can exacerbate the tension within the union.  

This training will help participants understand the facets that define culture and how culture can be used as a strength within a relationship. Through interactive discussion and activities participants will gain a deeper understanding of the importance of culture, and its role in the therapeutic alliance, in couples counseling. You will gain an understanding of how cultural views can cause a barrier to treatment and even deter clients from coming to therapy. The Facilitators will also use case studies of couples of various backgrounds and will look at effective methods, Gottman and others, for working with minority couples. 

This training will improve participant’s insight of how cultural biases exist and how to identify this through comprehensive assessment of the couple, and ongoing self-assessment. Best practices and research will be discussed to conclude the workshop.

 

This presentation is open to:

  • Social Workers
  • Professional Counselors
  • Therapists
  • Psychologists
  • Licensed Mental Health Practitioners
  • Other professionals interacting with populations engaged in mental health based services

and is beneficial for:

  • New practitioners who wish to gain enhanced insight surrounding the topic
  • Experienced practitioners who seek to increase and expand fundamental knowledge surrounding the subject matter
  • Advanced practitioners seeking to review concepts and reinforce practice skills and/or access additional consultation
  • Managers seeking to broaden micro and/or macro perspectives

Participants will receive their certificate electronically upon completion of the webinar and course evaluation form.
