Engaging BIPOC Communities Effectively Using Telehealth
Join us for a Live Webinar on September 24, 2021 from 1-2:30 pm EST
1.5 CE Credits available for behavioral health clinicians
The goal of this training is to deepen the participants’ understanding of the needs and challenges of clients who identify as Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) as they access and engage in behavioral health services provided through telehealth during this time of the COVID-19 and racism pandemics (Cheng & Conca-Cheng, 2020). The training will also integrate telehealth adaptations of trauma-focused and culturally-adapted interventions in working with BIPOC clients. Finally, participants will be provided with an opportunity to begin developing an implementation plan on how they will integrate trauma-informed and culturally-responsive approaches into their telehealth clinical work with BIPOC clients in their individual clinical practice and/or behavioral health programs.
- Illustrate at least two ways of culturally-adapting trauma-focused interventions when working with BIPOC clients.
- Identify and describe at least two strategies to increase BIPOC clients’ access and engagement to behavioral telehealth.
- Construct and organize a tentative plan with at least two action steps on how to use telehealth tools to help address racial trauma and other cultural needs that are unique to BIPOC clients.
