Mental Health Assessments: Trauma-informed Cultural Humility
Presented by the Central East Mental Health Technology Transfer Center
- Date: 12/09/2019 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
- Introduction: Mental health assessments may trigger distress. This webinar will explore principles and techniques for conducting routine mental health assessments with a sensitive, compassionate, culturally humble approach.
Sixty-to-seventy percent of adults have experienced at least one traumatic event. Devastating events that overwhelm our ability to cope are so common that we can assume every health and human service worker is serving clients, and supporting colleagues, who have faced trauma. Statistically, most workers in helping professions are also living with their own trauma history. Yet trauma is often discussed as an isolated, extreme condition rather than a common challenge to be managed in nearly every life. Mental health assessments often include necessary questions that may trigger distress. This webinar will explore principles and techniques for conducting routine mental health assessments with a sensitive, compassionate, culturally humble approach to help trauma survivors establish safety and build therapeutic trust. (Note: Timezone above is Pacific time. Presentation takes place at 2 pm Eastern US timezone)
