Culturally responsive skills can improve client engagement in services, therapeutic relationships between clients and providers, and treatment retention and outcomes. Cultural competence is an essential ingredient in decreasing disparities in behavioral health. This course defines cultural competence, presents a rationale for pursuing it, and describes the process of becoming culturally competent and responsive to client needs. It introduces a framework, adapting Sue’s (2001) multidimensional model of cultural competence as the guiding model across chapters. It ends with a broad overview of the concepts integral to an understanding of race, ethnicity, and culture.
