This presentation will broadly review a range of ethical issues and various clinical risk management issues that may arise in contemporary mental health practice. This ethics-oriented presentation is driven by case examples that challenge participants to develop an ethical decision making process for optimal clinical and professional outcomes.

Cultural Considerations in Substance Abuse Treatment for Teens/Young Adults (CE:3)

Presented by Derek Iwamoto, PhD
March 7, 2014 8:45am - 12:00 noon

Recent research suggests that universal substance abuse treatment approaches may be problematic when broadly applied to racially and ethnically diverse populations. This workshop will highlight key cultural considerations and emerging issues including specific health disparities experienced by diverse groups. Finally the presenter will highlight how racial identity and gender socialization (i.e., adherence to masculine and feminine norms) appears to influence substance use, and provide culturally-responsive recommendations on how to incorporate these factors into practice.
